There are many ways to reduce the amount of waste you put out for collection.
Clothes, appliances or toys
Instead of throwing away good clothes, appliances or toys, consider donating them to charities.
Furniture and bulky items
Plastic bags can be reused to carry shopping, or as bin liners
Cleaned-out containers can be used for storing small items
These can be cleaned and used to store food, or as a lunch box
If you have young children you can use reusable nappies or biodegradable nappies and nappy sacks.Slim your bin
