5 Top Recycling Tips
5 Tips to help you increase your household recycling.
- Keep a rubbish bag or bin at your front door so you can recycle your junk mail as soon as it comes through your letter box.
- Flatten your cardboard before you place it in the recycling bin. This will allow you to fit more in your bin, increasing the amount you can recycle.
- If you’re unsure about what can be recycled check online here on your local council website. You’ll be surprised about all the things you can actually recycle. Up to 70% of our waste can actually be recycled.
- All plastic bottles can be recycled, even mouthwash and sauce bottles, including their lids. Additionally metal items such as tin foil and empty aerosols can be recycled.
- Place your indoor recycling bin next to your general waste bin. This will act as a reminder and make it easier to recycle.
If your recycling bin is full, you can use recycle points at your local supermarket ‘drop when you shop’. I have this problem and have managed to incorporate this in with my weekly shop. I now have to remember to pack the car with my excess recycling rubbish and my carrier bags needed for my shopping. But now its become a weekly routine it makes it easier to remember.
Recycling is an easy & simple process. It also has the potential to save your council money and protect the worlds environment.
