20th December: Avoid landfill!

I have visited a landfill site, they are definately places to avoid! They don’t smell or look nice, they fill up our countryside with rubbish and create wasteland. Much of what ends up in landfill could actually be recycled or reused, once underground we can’t get at all those precious resources anymore.   Approximately 30% more glass, steel and aluminium are thrown away after Christmas, most local authorities collect these or provide a local recycling point so make sure yours don’t end up in landfill.
