TINS, cans, aerosols, paper, magazines, cardboard and plastic bottles.

These are the things we should all be recycling, says Hampshire County Council.

To mark National Recycle Week, the authority is encouraging people to focus their recycling on these everyday items.

The authority covers Havant, Fareham, Gosport, Winchester and East Hampshire districts.

Councillor Leslie Keeble, who leads the recycling scheme Project Integra, said: ‘I can’t stress how important recycling is.

‘It conserves raw materials, saves energy, protects the environment and reduces waste sent for disposal.

‘Although we know residents in Hampshire are keen recyclers, they are not always getting it right, so I would certainly urge people to concentrate on our key items.’
