Recycling 'for every room in the house'

Recycling is not limited to paper

There is something in every room of the house that can be recycled, according to one expert.

Shelly Miles of Texan news provider WOAI recently highlighted the different materials - rather than just paper - that can be recycled around a home.

For example, in the bathroom there are plastic bottles for shampoo, shower gel and conditioner, cardboard tubes inside toilet rolls, hairspray and air freshener cans.

The home office might include junk mail, outdated phone books - and some people might have old recyclable mobile phones.

And in the kitchen, cans, tins and glass jars are all able to enjoy a second life.

"There might be several materials in each room of your home that you never thought about recycling before," Ms Miles commented.

Mobile phone recycling is something that is believed to have become much more popular in recent years.

In May of this year, Hitwise research discovered that the number of internet searches conducted for terms related to this query have nearly trebled in the past 12 months.
