The word “recycling” is banded around in all sorts of places these days, it’s something which we should all be doing more of at home and in business, but what exactly is it and how can you do it?
It’s quite simple really – a little like the “make do and mend” philosophy adopted out of necessity in your Grandmother’s day it’s all about taking used materials (or parts of them) and turning them into something new and useful.
Recycling is the best way to reduce our consumption of raw materials which helps to save energy and reduce the amounts of greenhouse gases and air pollution we produce.
At The All Clear Company we are fanatics about recycling – it provides the key focus to all the waste we collect. You can rest assured that anything which can be reused or recycled will be reused or recycled – that’s our promise to you and to our fragile planet.
