What do you do with your empty bathroom bottles and jars, empty washing up liquid bottles, empty detergent bottles? Rather than recycling them consider re-using them. It makes sense, buy once use many times.
If each household in Addingham, refilled just one bottle/container each month the village could save more than 19,000 bottles a year going to recycling or landfill!
