About ChurchCare

The amount of waste recycled has increased signifcantly but this figure is still lower than some of our neighbouring EU countries, where some are recycling over 70% of their waste.

There is still a great deal of waste which could be recycled that ends up in landfill sites which is harmful to the environment.

Alongside basic paper, plastic and glass recycling consider ways to reduce the waste you produce at church and at home including food waste, energy waste and water waste.

If you are planning an extension or new facilities consider using a waterless toilet. If you want to seek advice from a congregation who have already installed you can also find a map of waterless toilets in churches here.
