We are all encouraged to recycle, reuse and reduce our waste; in fact it’s pretty criminal the amount of things which are wasted every single day and put into landfill sites clogging up the earth with rubbish. Many of these things which really ought to be recycled but aren’t can lay dormant in the earth for hundreds if not thousands of years – many man-made things just do not decompose.
One of the reasons why people don’t recycle is down to the age-old excuse of convenience. The majority of people are simply too lazy to go to the trouble of recycling however a few well placed and clearly signed recycle bins can make it easier for people to recycle than it is to dispose of their unwanted items in any other way – clever huh? That’s why there are so many recycling bins in car parks, on street corners, in supermarkets etc, so use them.
We aren’t just concerned about business waste, we are equally passionate about encouraging the general public to do what they can to recycle as much as they can. Next time you go to the supermarket, why not pop to the recycling bins, many of them have them, it’s an ideal time to recycle!
The number of things which can be safely recycled is actually quite surprising. Let’s look at a few examples;
There are loads more of course and I’m sure you are aware of many of them already. Many local councils are making it more and more easy to recycle and so next time you go to the bin just stop and think for a moment!
