Some Tips on How to Start Recycling
Recycling is so important. Tons of people already do their part in helping to reduce waste. I’m sure others want to, but don’t know where to start. Below are some tips on how to start making your life a little greener with recycling.
1. Start Small- Every little bit counts. If you start with the things you have control over, like your home and office, you can make a difference. Once you become comfortable recycling your own things, you can expand your influence to others around you.
2. Reduce and Reuse- Reducing consumption is the most important step in reducing waste. There are obviously times when consumption is necessary. In those times, try to reuse as many materials as possible. Reusing is even better that recycling because they do not need to be reprocessed before they can be used again.
3. Know What Items Can Be Recycled- Countless items all around you can be recycled. Knowing what they are is the easiest way to make sure you recycle as much as possible. Paper, glass, aluminum, plastic and electronics are some of the most common items that can be recycled. Not all plastics can be recycled, so you must look for the embedded recycle symbol on the bottom of the container. You also need to make you sure that you know where to send your recycling or get a bin for them to pick it up.
Repurposing items and recycling instead of throwing things away are some easy steps that can do to make a huge difference!
