Lancashire County Council is urging people to recycle the ‘forgotten items’ that often end up in their general waste bin.

The aim of this year’s National Recycle Week, from June 16 to 22, is to get everyone to think about what else they could be recycling.

County Councillor Janice Hanson said: “People in Lancashire have an excellent track record for recycling, but there’s always more you can do.

“Recycling is not just for the kitchen, there is so much more you can recycle upstairs, downstairs, outside and in the garage.

“Items like bleach bottles, toilet roll tubes and deodorant cans are often forgotten, but can all go in your recycling bin.

“Remember that unless you recycle it, it can’t go on to become something else. For example the strips being used by England during the World Cup are made up from an average of 18 recycled bottles each.”

If anyone is in doubt about what can and can’t go in their recycling bin, they are urged to visit their local district council website for information.
