|The Mobius Loop is probably the most famous recycling symbol, gracing everything from bins to drinks bottles. As a symbol it indicates that the object is capable of being recycled, not that it has been. Occasionally it can be seen with a %, usually done to indicate how much of the packaging uses an already recycled material.|
|The Tidyman is put on packaging that should be disposed of in a bin, This isn't particularly related to recycling but rather as part of the Keep Britain Tidy campaign serves as a reminder not to litter.|
|The Green Dot does not mean that the packaging is recyclable, has been recycled or will be recycled in the future. The Green Dot is actually a symbol used to indicate that the producer has joined the Green Dot Scheme, a European scheme where businesses make financial contributions towards recycling.|
|Plastics identifies the type of plastic resin used to make the item by the number contained within the mobius loop. Plastic is beginning to be recyclable more and more, with most homes now able to put more plastic packaging into their recycling bin.|
|Glass that can be disposed in bottle banks or personal household recycling bins. Make sure you wash out the inside first mind.|
|Aluminium that can be recycled at a local recycling point or in a household recycling bin.|
|The Paper symbol is only awarded by the National Association of Paper Merchants to paper or board that has a minimum of 50%, 75% or is 100% genuine waste paper or board fibre./td>|
These days most of us have several bins for all the different items we need to recycle and I'm sure like me you've spent 10 minutes digging through the paper bin for that glass jar you think you accidentally put in there. What we need are some bright coloured labels to help us out. From Angelic Hen come these wonderful fun bin labels, that can stuck right onto all the different bins and boxes to show exactly what can go where inside your wheelie bin or recycling store. Perfect.
