Are you big on recycling? How do you recycle? Do you just make sure recyclables go into your council recycling bin, or are you a more dedicated recycler? Do you even recycle food scraps with a compost bin?
I do as much as possible....making sure all the paper go's in the right bin, garden waste go's in the green bin. ect ect.My eldest son put his rubbish in my garden green bin!!! so I had to later get it out, Yuck!
I really am very careful, and have had years of doing it.
Yes, for sure - we have our recycling bin very close to the kitchen, so if we use something that can be recycled, we put it straight in the bin. Else, if we have a bunch of little things to recycle, we collect them in crates and empty it the night before bin day.
Oddly enough, I am in a large Shire and they do not have separate recycling bins.
We only have one bin, and they say they recycle themselves, however I am not sure I believe that people actually go through everyone's smelly rubbish in order to re-cycle.
I used to when I lived elsewhere.
I'm quite obsessive and have been known to go through other peoples bins and take their bottles and cans home with me. I think the council needs a sign that people can put on their yellow bin to indicate its not recycled stuff and should be collected by the other truck. I hate to think of loads being ruined by people who just don't care.
I recycle. I put recyclables in the council recycling bin and drop old light globes off for recycling at the hardware store. I compost food scraps, pet hair etc. I try not to get too much packaging and have a 'No Junk Mail' sticker on my letter box so I don't get lots of paper to dispose of. I go to a swap club fortnightly where people swap all sorts of things. I can take jars and egg cartons there for other people to re use.
Am very 'thingy' about recycling! My Council bin is nearly full each fortnight!
My 'scraps' get frozen until I feel like putting them around my 'Crepe Myrtle' tree. I defrost them overnight, then all the solids & liquids are spread around the tree!
It's really healthy for only six months' old, & has already flowered, beautiful mauve florets! Love it!
