All plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays can be recycled

Only 27 per cent of plastics thrown away in Surrey is recycled. Everyone in the county can recycle all plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays, which can then be reborn into great new products. Recycled plastics can become anything from furniture, children's toys, a football shirt or even new bottles.
