The Importance of Recycling

The Importance of Recycling

17th Apr 2020

We’ve all heard about recycling and seen the recycle symbol on the packaging we buy and use every day but why is recycling so important? Take a second to consider the 290 million tons of waste that is generated annually in the U.K. Have you ever wondered where all of that rubbish goes? Such a colossal amount of rubbish not only costs a lot of money to deal with but also drains our natural resources, thankfully recycling can help.

By recycling as much as we can, we are able to lessen the environmental impact, conserve energy and reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfill. Recycling is a revolution that can help protect the world for the future generations.

To help make recycling easier for everyone, we at Mr Rubble Skip Hire do our best to recycle as much waste as we can from our customers. You choose Mr Rubble skip hire Sheffield or skip hire Rotherham, we deliver the skip to you, you throw out your old items and we will make sure as much of the waste as possible gets recycled for you!

We see so many different items being thrown away on a daily basis and the majority of the items can be recycled or reused instead of going to landfill.  In fact, thanks to our recycling centre we can recycle 93% of the waste we collect. We think you’d be surprised at what a difference recycling can make…

Did you know that you can recycle plastic bottles, glass bottles and aluminium cans? By recycling these items instead of throwing them out you can help save the U.K. hours of power (per item!) and millions of tons of carbon dioxide per year. At Mr Rubble we make sure plastic is reprocessed, metal is sent for the production of new steel, cardboard and paper is distributed to paper mills and so much more!
Recycling helps to considerably reduce the amount of waste going to landfill which in turn, reduces the amount of harmful chemicals and greenhouse gasses that are being released. It also means less land is needed for landfill and less raw materials are needed meaning less habitat destruction.

On top of all of this, we are quite frankly running out of space for rubbish to go. When you choose Mr Rubble you not only get cheap skip hire but you can rest assured knowing your waste is being recycled and dealt with in an environmentally friendly manner.

Recycling is important for a plethora of reasons. Together we can move away from landfill, save raw materials, reduce costs and so much more. For more information on Mr Rubble Skip Hire, how we strive to recycle as much as we can and how to rent a skip from us, head over to www.mrrubble.co.uk.
