How to reduce the amount or recycle packaging.
Avoid excess packaging where possible by not buying it in the first place. Buy loose fruit and vegetables rather than pre-packed.
- You can compost packaging such as cardboard and paper. Find out about composting by visiting our composting web pages.
To purchase a compost bin visit www.derbyshire.getcomposting.com (opens in a new window) or call 0844 571 4444.
- Unfortunately there are no plastic packaging recycling facilities as there are no reprocessing plants in the UK who can take this material at present.
