Recycling our waste materials should be second nature to each and every one of us. In fact, the thought of wasting materials that have the opportunity to become a new item or product is illogical.
Recycling is fantastic for the environment for three key reasons:
– It saves! It saves energy from extracting raw materials, it saves money in disposal costs and it saves us having to use up more of our precious landfill space
– It protects our ecosystems and wildlife from the terrible destruction and damage caused to our natural world from extraction raw materials
– It conserves natural resources, such as ancient woodlands which are chopped down for paper and wood, and it conserves oil, which in turn reduces the amount of polluting single-use plastics in circulation
Chelmsford residents have embraced the City Council’s comprehensive recycling services and on-the-whole, we display passion in ensuring that our household waste receives a new lease of life. Of course, we can always recycle more, and services can be expanded and improved to enable us to perform even better.
