These days, recycling isn’t a new or strange concept. Most people recycle and it’s even considered a civic duty, a necessity. While homeowners likely have recycling pick up and can put their bins on the curb, people who live in apartments usually have to put in the extra effort of taking their recyclables to the nearest drop-off site (during business hours). Making small changes to your lifestyle can make recycling easier on you (and on the staff at recycling centers).
Perhaps the biggest change you’ll need to make is to reduce the amount of non-recyclable (and recyclable) items you use. The less things you throw away, the better.
Do a quick search on Google or Pinterest and you’ll find thousands of DIY projects using recyclable materials like aluminum cans and soda bottles. There are even more ways to reuse things at home.
Recycling’s not complicated, right? Separate paper, plastic, and glass from the rest of the trash. Unfortunately, it’s a bit more involved than that. The good news is that most cities use a method called “commingled” recycling meaning you don’t need to separate your items into different containers. It’ll be sorted later by the recycling center. The bad news is that not everything made of paper, plastic, and glass can be recycled.
Try your hand at doing some high-level recycling.
Recycling can be challenging, but it’s our job to keep landfills clear from as much non-biodegradable items as possible. With landfills generating millions of tons of trash every day contaminating our air and ground water, and the 14 billion pounds of trash dumped in our oceans every year, it’s no longer an option to recycle. It’s necessary for everyone from individuals to corporations to do their part.
