...spotted this today, really made me think about what I recycle, thought you might be interested (source was the environment agency). My friends Jen-down-the-road and Jane-across-the-street have both called me a "Womble" (in the kindest possible way), due to my habit of collecting discarded tin cans and glass/plastic bottles from local pavements and recycling them. At last I know why!
* One recycled tin can would save enough energy to power a television for three hours
* One recycled glass bottle would save enough energy to power a computer for 25 minutes
* One recycled plastic bottle would save enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for three hours.
