Refuse & Recycling

Happy in their work - Monique and Peter (the organiser) at the end of their Lankham Bottom walk

Refuse and recycling involves us all. We enjoy the benefits when it is done well, but we all get frustrated or annoyed when we see rubbish discarded carelessly or usable materials not properly recycled.

Some of the images on this page act as a reminder of the consequences of when Refuse and Recycling is not dealt with properly, but more positively there are also images that remind us of how easy it is to dispose of all types of rubbish and how to recycle useful, reusable materials properly.

We live in a beautiful part of England, so let’s all help to keep it that way.
