Reduce My Rubbish
What can you do?More
Did you know, we throw away around 30% more rubbish at Christmas?
From plastic packaging, discarded wrapping paper and unwanted gifts, to leftover turkey, cold Christmas pud and forgotten about veg – it all adds up to a lot of waste!
The good news is there are lots of things we can all do to help to reduce this, like choosing gifts with no packaging, using up leftover food and recycling as much as we can.
Have a go at our Christmas activity sheet and help the elves (and your families!) to waste less over this festive period.
For more ideas take a look at our Christmas waste pages.
No matter where you live in Norfolk, you can put the same items in your household recycling bin. Test your knowledge of what can and can’t go in your recycling bin at home against the clock. Share this with your friends at the end of the game.

Reducing rubbish in school is easy.
There are several ways schools can look at reducing the amount of waste they throw away every day. Waste prevention is a better environmental option and usually cheaper than either reusing, recycling or disposing of rubbish.
