Odd items - What can I do with...?

It's pretty easy to recycle bottles and lids, but what about those tricky every day items that are hard to dispose of? Here's some guidance to help you keep our planet tidy...

Toothbrush recycling is available through Terracycle: Toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes, floss packaging and electric heads are recyclable through this scheme.

Electric tootbrush heads, electric flosser heads, flossing sticks and interdental sticks and floss containers are recyclable here. Alternatively, you could switch to wooden/bamboo toothbrushes that are compostable in home composting and can be found for as little as £2 online and in some retailers.
