Day 20: Paper and card are some of the biggest waste streams at the ScienceMuseum. By our own calculation, over the 30 day documentation period we will have seen around 7 to 8 tonnes of paper and card, mostly from our shops and kitchens. Our retail team reuse what they can but most goes to be recycled into new packaging materials. 
Want to see what 7.5 tonnes of recycled paper and card looks like? Visit us after 25th July for phase 2 of The Rubbish Collection. Find out more via www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/rubbishcollection

Day 19: PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL! Shredding paper is the best way to keep your private documents private but it’s not so easy to recycle because it falls through the machinery or gets stuck in recycling plants. It could be used as a cosy bed for your favourite hamster but check the ink isn’t toxic first!  For more tips go to: www.recyclenow.com/what-to-do-with/paper.

Day 18:The Science Museum offices have crossed the final frontier of recycling and are now separating food waste for composting! This will soon be rolled out across the Museum to cover all cafes and restaurants and we estimate this could cut the volume of rubbish going to incineration by almost half. Food for thought!

Day 17: No diggity, I got to bag it up… But do you really need to use that plastic bag?

Day 16: Ever wondered where the office cutlery mysteriously disappears to? Well we’ve found the answer; with a mountain of various cutlery, bowls, mugs and other tableware reappearing from the dark depths of the bins.

Day 14: On Sunday this discarded electrical wiring sparked our interest. Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) should go to specialist recycling as it often contains either dangerous or potentially valuable materials which can be reclaimed. WEEE is a growing area of waste with 170 million electrical items bought each year in the UK – that’s nearly three per person.

Day 13: We just can’t palate waste! Many of the Science Museum’s large deliveries arrive on pallets but we don’t usually throw them away until they are broken as they can be reused many times. Clean wood like pallets, which hasn’t been treated or painted, can be chipped and used as fuel in specialist incinerators to generate energy, or they can be made into chipboard.

Day 12: Imagine a world where One Direction stopped producing carbon dioxide… Today’s trash contained positive proof that the Science Museum is asking all the big questions about climate change and sustainability. But what are the answers?
