Recycling. Why is it important?

  • Recycling conserves energy and carbon by putting the packaging material back to use and avoiding the pollution caused by having to extract, mine and process new resources.
  • Producing new materials requires energy, which means more emissions and more global warming. Recycling a tonne of plastic, rather than producing the same amount as new, saves a tonne of CO2 from being produced.
  • Recycling keeps waste out of landfill. In England, we have less than 500,000 cubic metres of landfill space left (this is down from 715,000 in 2000).
  • In landfill waste can have further environmental impacts. If waste ends up in our seas and oceans, for example, it can have a devastating impact on wildlife and marine life.
  • In the UK, the average household uses 480 plastic bottles per year, but only recycles 270 of them. This needs to change.
