Recycling Water

Did you know it is possible to collect 24,000 litres (5,280 gallons or 150 water butts) of rainwater from your roof each year. Rainwater is simple to collect; just divert the water from your drainpipe into a water butt or wheelie bin. There’s a huge selection of butts and rainwater systems available and many local authorities are offering discounts on products to encourage people to recycle water.

With water companies warning that parts of the UK could see a drought this summer after the driest winter in more than 20 years it could be a great time to think about recycling your rainwater.
