The Rubbish Book
By James Piper
A Complete Guide to Recycling
About the book
Plastic bottles, cardboard boxes, aluminium cans… we all get through a lot of rubbish, but do you really know what happens after you put it in the bin? Are you even sure which bin it goes in?
Recycling has never been more important – but it has also never been more complicated.
- Where do you put bottle lids?
- Why can't black plastic be recycled?
- What do you do with labels?
The Rubbish Book answers all these questions and many more, providing you with all the information you need to become a true recycling expert, so you can help protect the planet with confidence.
Written by an award-winning sustainability expert, it includes an A–Z of household items and whether they can be recycled; an in-depth look at the collection and sorting processes; a break-down of what the recycling symbols on our packaging actually mean; and an insight into the future of recycling and the new materials that will change the way we look at rubbish for ever.
Just curious if there were any updates on progress or thoughts. The book is fully funded per the project page.
Hi Roger, thanks for asking. I have now submitted the completed manuscript to Unbound for review. I don't know if you have bought from Unbound before but it is quite a lengthy process as they produce very high quality books and the nature of crowdfunding means you are supporting a book very early. We begin the editing process now that the book has been submitted and will communicate at the different stages of development. I am waiting to hear back from their initial review which will give me a better idea on the release expectations. Hope that helps! James.
