IN OUR TIME
What a Waste! Over a third of Britons still do not recycle their household goods, according to a new survey commissioned by the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) Furniture & Electrical stores. Although over a quarter of UK households currently replace large furniture and electrical goods – including sofas and televisions – every two years, an alarming 20% of those families simply dump their unwanted goods in landfill sites. BHF discovered most of the households still dumping these goods did not know recycling was an alternative and greener option. Each year, British households are sending 50,000 tonnes of furniture to landfill – that’s the equivalent of burying 3,000 double-decker buses.
