I always try to do my bit by recycling as much as I can - but we all know it can be confusing to work out what can be recycled and what can't.

Pringles tubes and Lucozade bottles have been identified by the Recycling Association as the worst culprits of the recycling world. Both combine different materials, making it hard for recycling centres to separate them.

The harder it is for everyone to recycle, the more waste ends up at our landfills. I hope manufacturers continue to find more sustainable containers for our food.
