In my little suburb of the cities we have a no sort trash type bin for our recycling. I Was pretty excited when this arrived last May and I’m pleased to say it has had a HUGE impact on the amount of garbage we throw away. In fact our garbage bin is only rolled out to the curb every 2-3 weeks (unless we are working on a big project.)
Why you may ask? Well here are my thoughts on the matter.
- The first one is easy, no sorting! Its a lot easier to convince not only my husband to recycle but its easy for guests to as well when all they have to do is throw anything recyclable in to the paper bag in the pantry.
- Hey the second one is easy too, we can recycle more things. The new company who runs the bins accepts more types of plastics and a few other extras.
- We have also began purchasing more Eco-responsible items. We choose things that are recyclable or have less or no packaging.
- Instead of throwing things out we are selling or donating them.
So how about you? Do you recycle or trash things more? Why so?
