Retaining Wall

Hi all! Not strictly a query regarding plants, but as we improve and expand our garden, we are looking for ideas regarding the building of affordable effective retaining walls. The wall will be about 12 metres long, 80 cms high, Would love to use recycled materials. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
