Before you buy a new bin, enter your postcode on the government’s recycling connections website to see what your council recycles.
That way, you know how many different sections your ideal bin will have to have to keep things separate.
Have a quick check – especially on plastics – as to what is recyclable and what needs to go to landfill.
When you realise even crisp packets must go in the non-recycle trash, you might realise there’s a lot more to this than chucking tins in a separate bucket.
We’ve collated a great selection of kitchen recycling bins that will help keep things straight.
