Recycle at home and away is the message for this year's National Recycle Week from June 18 - 24.
Whether you are watching events like the Jubilee, Wimbledon, The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games or Euro 2012, at the venues, on big screens around the country or from your own front room, this could be a bumper year for waste.
But it has never been easier to recycle at home or while you are out and about.
During recycle week North East Lincolnshire Council's recycling team will be in Grimsby and Cleethorpes to offer advice, support and tips to residents.
See them from 10.00 am to 2.00 pm at:
Municipal Offices, Grimsby on Tuesday, June 19
Civic Offices, Cleethorpes on Wednesday, June 20
Recycling one aluminium can in your orange box saves enough energy to power a television set for three hours.
Using a glass or mug saves wasted disposable cups. Every year we use 4 billion plastic cups in the UK and most of those are used once and then thrown away.
It is estimated that there are 15 million plastic bottles used in the UK every day and only 48 per cent of them get recycled. By rinsing, squashing, putting the top back on and dropping them off at a local bring site each bottle recycled would save enough energy to power a 60W light bulb.
All households are now expected to recycle, it is no longer optional. Waste collection crews will no longer collect side waste and all rubbish must fit inside the green wheeled bin and recycling must fit into the supplied boxes.
And from today, cardboard will no longer be accepted in garden waste bins, instead it must be placed in green wheeled bins.
While you are out, please continue to separate your waste and drop it into the recycling containers that are now commonplace across town centres and event venues around the UK.
