Day 29: We’re going back to our roots and have created a blooming lovely photo from the rubbish. We don’t have a compost heap at the museum, but why don’t you create one in your garden at home? Here’s some more information: http://www.bbc.co.uk/breathingplaces/compost/

Day 28: Yes we can! Metals like steel and aluminium can be recycled time and again. They are washed, shredded and then smelted into new metal sheets and bars. Your old aluminium can could be a new can again in as little as 6 weeks! Find out more at: www.everycancounts.co.uk.

Day 27: A bit of blue sky thinking… The Science Museum offices, bathrooms and cafés use a huge amount of paper towels which, for the most part, cannot be recycled. Some councils will take a small amount of paper towel in with kitchen food waste recycling but it’s best to check first. www.recyclenow.com/what-to-do-with/kitchen-roll

Day 26: It’s a sign (to recycle more metal!)… These metal letters have been taken out of the Science Museum’s IMAX cinema and will become some of the average 780kg of metals that are disposed of for recycling from the Museum each month. You’ll be able to see what happens to those metals in Phase 2 of The Rubbish Collection, which opens on 25th July.
