Bathroom recycling

If everyone in the UK recycled one toothpaste box, it would save enough energy to run a fridge in over 2,000 homes for a year.

There are lots of items in the bathroom waiting to be recycled that can make a huge difference. Here's a handy list to remind you:

  • Toothpaste boxes - flatten

  • Toilet roll tubes - flatten

  • Plastic shampoo and conditioner bottles - empty and rinse items, replace lids/tops

  • Shower gel containers - empty and rinse items, replace lids/tops

  • Liquid soap bottles - empty, rinse and remove pump dispenser (throw pump into the rubbish bin)

  • Bleach bottles - empty, replace lid

  • Bathroom cleaners - rinse and replace the trigger spray
