Kick-start your recycling habits

DERBYSHIRE County Council are urging residents to kick-start their recycling habits while cheering on their team this summer.

More than 33,000 tonnes of household rubbish are expected to be produced in the county during the tournament - enough to cover 12 World Cup football pitches.

Sales of drinks cans and bottles from off-licences and supermarkets are expected to rise during the world cup.

So Derbyshire County Council are reminding residents to reduce, reuse and recycle their cans, bottles and newspapers.

Instead of throwing empty, used or unwanted items in the bin ready to be taken to landfill sites - which are filling up fast and produce gases which harm the environment as rubbish rots away - residents are being urged to do their bit for the environment.

A range of items can be recycled at the county council's household waste recycling centres across Derbyshire.

Recycled bottles can make a reappearance in a surprising way.

Some kits worn at the World Cup will be made from recycled plastic bottles with teams from Brazil, Portugal, the Netherlands and the USA wearing strips made from polyester where the polyester has come from recycled plastic bottles.
