Rubbish Facts

A-Z of rubbish bin facts

A-Z of rubbish bin facts

Americans - Prefer to use the terms trash or garbage cans whilst in Britain we tend to say waste or rubbish bin

Bin - A kind of container, especially a dustbin (Wikipedia's definition of the term bin)

Compost bin - Is the container used to make compost. Generally these bins tend to be made of hard plastic, and is commonly cylindrical in shape, although a variety of shapes and sizes are available.

Dustbin - Tends to refer to an outside bin that houses domestic and garden waste. Nowadays most households have a wheelie bin and as such the black dustbin has reduced in numbers significantly.

Every Year - The average person puts 450Kg into their rubbish bin and it is estimated up to 60% of this could be recycled with existing methods if we disposed of our recyclables correctly. Out of that 450Kg 52% is sent to landfill. By contrast, the average Copenhagen citizen bins 420kg per year but just 1% is sent to landfill, with the rest recycled or burnt for energy production.

Flashing Bunny Ears - Sir Paul Smith, the World famous English fashion designer has unveiled a new line. This range does not involve new clothing or accessories but a 5ft high plastic ‘Bunny shaped waste bin’. The quirky rabbit bins have ears that light up when rubbish is put in its bin bag - it is hoped to encourage people to put their rubbish into proper bins rather than just drop it on the streets. Why a rabbit? Well it seems the humble rabbit is a symbol of good luck for Paul that grew out of a conversation on a train many years ago.

Germany - If there is something other than the beerfest that Germans pride themselves on it might well be their waste management, with the industry in Germany worth £39 Billion

Harmful Chemicals - and greenhouse gasses are released from rubbish in landfill sites. Recycling helps to reduce the pollution caused by waste

Increasing Wealth - Means that people are buying more products and ultimately creating more waste.

Japanese Beer - Believe it or not, the next sip of Japanese beer you take could, in a roundabout way, save a life. Asahi beer isn’t just the most internationally recognisable of Japan’s brews, but it turns out to be the most environmentally friendly. According to a recent report in the U.K. Telegraph, Asahi makes good use of every bit of waste produced by the brewing process. While it probably wouldn’t surprise most to learn that Asahi recycles its own paper, bottles, cans, and even plastic hop sacks, it would floor most to find out that the company turns its waste yeast into pharmaceutical products for the mass market. We’re unclear on the exact details of the process, but if the next Japan cold remedy you ingest has that extra kick, you can let your imagine wander and consider the frothy possibilities.

Kitchen Recycling Bins - At I'm Rubbish we have a number of Kitchen Bins which are suitable for recycling. These bins include our eco waste bin which has a general waste bin for standard litter and a small compartment for organic waste.

London - Sends more waste to landfill than any other major European city. The Average londoner throws out 520Kg per year, the fifth highest rate of any European city.

Money - On average, 16% of the money you spend on a product pays for the packaging, which ultimately ends up as rubbish.

Natural Resources - Huge amounts of energy are used when making products from raw materials. Recycling requires much less energy and therefore helps to preserve natural resources.

Organic Waste - On average 35% of the average UK rubbish bin is filled with organic waste that could otherwise be composted.

Parisians - Anyone living in and around Paris can expect daily collections of there rubbish as oppose to weekly or fortnightly in Britain.

Quality - Recycled products are being continually improved and the cost is coming down substantially, so consider buying recycled and close the loop.

Recycling - Did you know that Britain is Europes second worst recycler.

Sponsorship - Coca Cola is rolling out a new consumer focused recycling program in the UK in an attempt to address the company’s carbon emissions. Along with the Southampton city council, the company will jointly fund a citywide recycling program that entails placing branded recycling bins in areas of heavy pedestrian traffic. This will be the country’s first city center Recycle Zone, a part of a larger initiative that coincides with a national ad campaign geared toward boosting consumer awareness and recycling.

Television - The unreleased energy contained in the average dustbin each year could power a television for 5,000 hours.

Using The Recycling Facilities - This is one of the simplest things we all can do. We all have local recycling centres that take all matter of goods from garden waste to electronics and metals. Nearly all the supermarkets also have facilities to recycle old clothes, glass and plastic.

Vehicle - Up to 80% of a vehicle can be recycled.

Welsh Councils - Have hit their recycling targets for sending waste to landfill a year early. This will mean they will not face European Union financial penalties if they continue to recycle at the same rate next year. The new EU initiative begins in 2010, and states that the rate of biodegradable waste such as food, cardboard and paper being sent to landfill must be down by 75% compared to 1995 levels. By 2013 this will be reduced by a further 50%, and will go down another 35% by 2020.

Xmas Trees - Yes even your little Xmas friends can be recycled in your green bin or at certain garden centres.

Yamashita - A researcher at Japan’s Institute of Space and Astronautical Science, recently held a lecture directed to his peers on the merits of recycling human waste to feed space-farers. At the 36th Assembly of the Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) in Beijing, Yamashita laid out a plan that argues for the healthy recycling of human waste to grow food in situations where humanity attempts to colonise new planets without an Earth-like ecosystem. Yamashita refers to the process as hyper-thermophilic aerobic compost, but most Earth-bound food lovers will probably refer to the idea as Poop A La Carte. As in, no seconds for me, thank you.

Zero Waste - This is what Britain and the Rest of the World should be striving to achieve in our life times.
