You can recycle plastics from every room in the house

Did you know that if you recycle your plastic pots, tubs, trays and bottles, they could be reborn as new items like furniture, children’s toys, a football shirt or even another bottle?

Everyone in Surrey can recycle plastics from each room in their home. That includes yoghurt pots, margarine tubs, fruit or veg trays and every type of plastic bottle. Whether the bottle contained drinks, shampoo, bleach, cooking oil or ketchup, it can be recycled and turned into a great new product.

To find out how you can recycle plastics where you live, contact your district or borough council or visit our recycling where you live pages.

Think you know your football shirts?

Why not test yourself with our England football shirts quiz? Just match the strip to the year it was worn and see how much you really know.

Helping you to recycle more

There is also advice online on how to compost at home, what to do with old clothes and home textiles, and what plastics can be recycled. You can also find out about the Surrey Green Network - our volunteers who help you to throw less away.
