Can you recycle?

Facemasks, plastic gloves and any sort of PPE (personal protecting equipment) can’t be recycled. Throw these in your rubbish bin.

To reduce your waste, you could buy or make your own facemasks. There are loads of small London-based businesses that sell handmade, sustainable facemasks made from ethically-sourced materials.

If you fancy making your own, check out this page on the Government website.
