Brush up on the 3 ‘R’s for 2021

Brush up on the 3 ‘R’s for 2021

As it's a New Year it's a good time to brush up on the 3 'R's to help make the world a cleaner, greener place. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle are an important part of sustainable living as they help to cut down on the amount of waste we throw away.

  • Reduce the amount of waste you produce
  • Reuse items as much as you can before replacing them
  • Recycle wherever possible

The 3 'R's will save you money, energy and will reduce landfill.

Knowing what can be recycled can be confusing, however help is at hand from the DDDC website. Head to the "Clean & Green" page at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk and under "Bins & recycling" there's a detailed A-Z of what item goes into which bin.

Alternatively, if you'd prefer a guide that can be kept in your kitchen DDDC have this handy "What goes where" wheel available free of charge on request by calling 01629 761100.
