Splish! Splash! Recycle

Published: 19 December 2017

Are you recycling plastic bottles from your bathroom?

It may be the smallest room in the house but did you know the bathroom can make a big difference when it comes to recycling?

There are plenty of plastic bottles from your bathroom that you may not have even realised you can recycle, including:

  • Shampoo, conditioner and shower gel bottles
  • Hand wash, mouthwash and moisturiser bottles
  • Toilet cleaner, bathroom spray and bleach bottles

Plastic bottles are often recycled from the kitchen but we don't always think about those from the bathroom, but there are some simple things you can do to make it easier to remember. Why not put an extra recycling bin upstairs? Or if you live in a flat or don't have much space, you could hang a bag over the back of a door. Just make sure you empty it into your recycling bin later.

To find out more about recycling bottles from the bathroom as well as from every room in the home, visit the Surrey Environment Partnership website.
