Day 15: Thought you’d missed the boat? Don’t worry, there are still 15 days left to join us and take part in The Rubbish Collection! Getting creative with the Science Museum trash could unleash a wave of satisfaction.

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?

Day 11: Blue is the colour… I hope there weren’t too many sore heads after the Science Museum Sexuality Lates. The Rubbish Collection was kept very busy with all the bottles consumed by our merry visitors.

Day 10: Thanks to all the happy Science Museum Lates visitors this week who took time out from exploring their sexuality to explore The Rubbish Collection bins instead!

Day 9: Let’s give a big hand (or two) to the volunteer who created this out of old baguettes! Unfortunately, the Museum does have to throw away some food for hygiene reasons. However, the systems for food recycling in both our cafés and offices are being updated, and we’re bringing back 2 tonnes of fertiliser in phase 2 to represent the food waste we’re expecting to recycle in phase 1.

Day 8: The photo above shows an old display or model toilet. My ideas for today’s caption have gone down the pan, but I won’t be resorting to toilet humour. I can however confirm that we will be displaying approximately 250kg of dried poo (proper name sewage blocks or sludge cakes) during phase 2 of this exhibition, which represents what we’re flushing away during phase 1.

Day 7: Night at the Museum: 460 packed breakfasts for 460 hungry Science Night guests. Hope they all slept well with no spooky goings on amongst the museum displays…

Day 6: Evidence of an Explainer party in the Science Museum Staff Social Club? Glass is one of our most commonly recycled materials and can easily be made into new bottles or is sometimes ground down to make glass sand which can be used in aggregates and in the building industry.
