Why You Should Recycle Your Kitchen

By 27th May 2019Kitchens, Recycling

Have you thought about recycling your kitchen when you replace it?  The UK produces more than 100 million tonnes of waste every year – one tonne is about the weight of a small car.  In less than two hours, the waste we produce would fill the Albert Hall.  Every year we produce around 3% more waste than the year before.  This means we will double the amount of waste produced every 25 years!

Cutting back on waste dumped in landfill is a priority for many people right now.  We all need to reduce our waste and we are being encouraged to recycle more and more.  Recycling your kitchen, or buying an ex-display or used kitchen, can help.  A kitchen weighs around 2-3 tonnes and many are thrown out when they have many years of life left in them.

Recycling your kitchen, and letting someone else enjoy it, is a great way to help the environment.  It will also make you feel better about demolishing perfectly good kitchen cabinets.  You might be tired of your kitchen or want to change the layout to something more functional, but it might just suit someone else, especially if they are on a low budget.

Don’t Know How to Recycle Your Kitchen?

Interested in recycling your kitchen and kitchen appliances but don’t know how?  Give us a call on 0203 002 0005 or visit our website at www.usedkitchenhub.com  Many people say they just can’t be bothered.  Is that a good enough reason?  We are presented with lots of misinformation about overflowing landfill sites, depleted resources and climate change and it is difficult to know what to believe.  Maybe you think that recycling makes no difference?

Recycling saves energy because the manufacturer doesn’t have to produce something new from raw natural resources.  It also saves on landfill.  No-one wants to live near a landfill site and we cannot go on putting so much waste into landfill as eventually we will run out of room.  Recycling creates less pollution and uses less energy and less water which is good for the environment.  Recycling also produces less carbon which reduces the amount of unhealthy greenhouse gas emissions.  All of this helps combat climate change.

There is another bonus of recycling your kitchen through a company such as Used Kitchen Hub.  You will receive some money towards your new kitchen or for some new kitchen gadgets or kitchen appliances.  It really is a win win situation for everyone involved and the environment.
