It is everyone's responsibility to recycle as much waste as we can. After treatment, these materials are reused which reduces the amount of energy required for re-processing. Opposed to using raw materials, it also benefits the environment.
Recycling correctly not only helps the environment but also has financial benefits for everyone. The more you, the householder, can recycle the more it increased the revenue received from the material. This is why it is important to only recycle items that are requested within the Barrow Borough Recycling Scheme.
