Getting Started with Recycling
Set up an easy to use organized recycling system!
You can make a huge difference in the amount of waste you consume by recycling everything you normally throw away. Start with the largest items first, or items that can be easily recycled. For example, you most likely purchase bottled juice, water, laundry detergent, cans of food, and a lot of food that is contained in cardboard boxes. Find several bins or trash barrels that you can place these in.
Separate your items by plastic, metal, and cardboard. Flatten cardboard as small as you can make it. Recycling in this manner will make a huge impact on your personal level of consumption. If your town does not have a recycling pick up, it will most likely have a transfer/recycling station that you can drop the items off to.
