Produced by Debating Matters, this topic guide looks at the value of recycling household waste. It has been argued that our concern with recycling is out of all proportion with its benefits and that our priorities have become skewed.
Is recycling an essential part of raising environmental awareness, or would our time be better spent considering wider issues around sustainable development? This topic guide presents information, further reading and web links that help students to understand and debate the issues around the disposal of household waste.

Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
