January - March 2019 Waste & recycling

Is your bin always full? Are you looking for ways to cut down on the amount of the waste that goes in your bin?

We are encouraging residents to think about how they can tackle their waste with their Don’t be a Waster – Reduce, Reuse, Respect campaign which is focusing on reducing waste.

There are many ways to reduce waste – from changing your shopping habits by choosing products with less packaging to reusing jars or plastic boxes.  Using up leftover food is another quick and easy way to reduce waste. Composting is a good way to reduce your garden waste – and the compost you produce is a great way to enrich your own garden.

Learn more about waste and how you can recycle everyday items in our A to Z of waste (PDF 26 pages, 2.1MB).

Making a few simple changes to our shopping habits can make a huge difference to the amount of waste in our bins. Reusable drinks bottles rather than single use plastic bottles, reusing ice cream tubs as storage containers or switching from paper towels and cleaning wipes to reusable cloths are all simple lifestyle changes that can have an impact on the amount of waste in your bin.

Home composting can be a great way improve your own garden and using up food leftovers can save you money too. Simple lifestyle changes like these can make a big difference.

The average home produces around a tonne of rubbish every year. In weight that is the equivalent of a small car – which is a lot of rubbish.

As well as kerbside collections, residents can dispose of a range of rubbish at North Yorkshire County Council run Household Waste & Recycling Centres. Ryedale District Council also operates town centre mini recycling centres that can take glass, paper, cardboard, cans and plastic bottles.
