So if you’re after skip hire in Bristol, or anywhere else across the UK, and have a large amount of rubbish, take these points into account and start recycling your waste!

Why Should You Recycle?

Recycling has a number of positive benefits that help make the world a cleaner, greener place:

  • Conserves Resources – In a world that is so dependent on the consumption of energy and resources, finding new sources of materials is very important. This is where recycling proves its worth. Recycling, as you probably know, is the repurposing or reusing of materials to turn them into exciting new products. If manufacturers choose to use fresh, raw materials, these have to be harvested from the Earth. The processes involved could be damaging to many natural habitats or the environment. Recycling not only preserves habitats, but ensures that important natural resources are conserved.
  • Saves Energy – Sourcing and harvesting raw materials around the planet requires location, extraction, refining and transportation. All of these processes require a lot of energy. Globally, we can save a huge amount of energy through recycling. Using industry ready recycled materials saves on both energy and money.
  • Protects The Environment – The extraction of natural resources produces a significant amount of water and air pollution, which in turn can disrupt ecosystems and contribute to global warming. Recycling reduces this pollution significantly. UK recycling is estimated to save more than 18 million tonnes of CO2 a year. So if you’re green minded, then cheap skip hire in Bristol, Liverpool, London or anywhere else in the UK, from Skip Hire UK can help you do your bit by recycling your waste.
  • Save Money –Through the recycling and repurposing of materials, you’re less likely to need buying new and expensive products. Ultimately, this means you can save money. If you’re recycling a large amount monthly, this all adds up so you can make some incredible savings, or spend your hard earned money on more exciting products!

So, as you can see, recycling is hugely beneficial not just for the UK, but for the planet as a whole. Here’s some other fascinating facts:

  • Recycling one plastic bottle saves enough energy to power a 60w light bulb for 6 hours.
  • You can power a TV for 3 hours with the energy saved from recycling one aluminium can!
  • Instead of producing a new glass bottle, recycling one saves enough energy to power your computer for 20mins.
