Rubbish collected for the week to go into the landfill bin, which can't be recycled:
8 crisp packets (twisted & knotted)
1 tobacco packet from DH
2 plastic tops from cream tubs
1 glass bottle lid with plastic inside
1 butter wrapper (supporting the local milkman)
1 multipak crisp wrapper (twisted & knotted)
8 chicken drumstick bones
2 plastic sleeves from meats that were used from freezer
Total weight of rubbish put into landfill this week.........................309 g
So whilst not a total zero waste fortnight, our rubbish has decreased from 2 black bin liners and sometimes 3 every 2 weeks to just under 650g in the 2 week period; basically everything in our landfill bin would fit into a carrier bag even after 2 weeks.
I am more than pleased with this result, but will continue to moniter and even reduce further over the coming weeks and months.
