Reduce waste and reuse

Find out how you can reduce waste and reuse resources, to help make Croydon more sustainable.

Overview

Much of our waste could be recycled or reused and some can be avoided all together by making a few small changes.

Buy things to last longer rather than buying disposables. For example, rechargeable batteries can be reused many times, and washable nappies can create a substantial reduction in what you throw away.
