Energy and sustainability

Energy and sustainability

Dog with warm coat

These pages will tell you how to save money on your fuel bills by making small changes, and how you can make your home more energy efficient.  

We all want to save money on the things we need, so we can spend it on the things we want.

Reducing gas, electricity and water bills can help you save a considerable amount of money over the course of a year, and here we talk about how to make your bills lower.

There’s also information about recycling, sustainable travel, and how making small changes to the way you do things around  your home can really help bring the bills down, and make you more healthy into the bargain.

Take a look at our energy advice leaflet.


Find out how to reduce, reuse and recycle your waste and where your nearest recycling point is.
