Recycling Basics for the Home

There are many ways to improve the quality of your environment. Recycling is one way, and it is growing more popular every day, as more and more people are learning about it. This article will discuss five ways that you can succeed in home recycling.

Visit or Call Your Local Recycling Center

Your recycling center will provide you with information about what they accept for recycling. This will help you set up your bins. To find your nearest local center, call 1-800-CLEANUP.

Set Up Your Bins

Once you find out what you can recycle, it is time to set up your bin storage system. Set it up to correspond with your center's requirements for storing glass, metals and papers. Determine where you're going to house this storage. The most optimal place is your garage, since you don't have to worry about pests, wind or thieves. Label your bins to ensure that your materials are placed correctly.

Clean Bottles and Tins Before Putting Them in the Recycle Bin

Rinse all of your bottles and tins with water before putting them in your bins. This will prevent flies and other pests from coming, both at home and at the recycle center. It will also prevent odors, as milk tends to sour and juice ferments.

Put a 'No Junk Mail' Sticker on Your Mailbox

Tired of getting junk mail, magazines and newspapers that you never read? Put a "no junk mail" sticker on your mailbox. This may or may not work, depending on your carrier and your post office's policies. If it does, you will have a lot less paper to sort through every day.

Buy Recycled

Many companies use recycled materials for their packaging. Others use them to make paper products, plastic products and more. This will not only sustain the market demand for recyclable materials, but it will also keep the landfills at a reasonable level.
