Recycling at Home: 5 Tips to Improve Your Recycling
Recycling in South Africa
We all know that we should be recycling at home and doing our part towards preserving the environment.
Although sometimes life gets busy, and in the hustle and bustle of things we feel like we don’t have time to spend on things like recycling.
In reality though, recycling doesn’t take up much time, especially when you consider the substantial benefits that it provides.
When recycling at home, creating a simple recycling system, that includes the whole family, can help speed up the process.
The key to successful recycling is transforming it into something that becomes second nature.
Bardale Village brings you 5 tips to improve your recycling at home.
A little R & R & R
When recycling at home, it’s important to keep the ‘3 Rs’ in mind:
Reduce, reuse and recycle – in that order.
Reducing the amount that we consume is the first step.
Next we need to identify constructive ways to reuse “waste” materials around the home.
With these considerations in mind, we turn to recycling.
Set Up Recycling Bin
Having an easily accessible recycling bin in your home will help make recycling less of a schlep.
This doesn’t need to take up space, a simple recycling bag strategically placed will do the trick.
If you’re living in a double storey home, having an extra recycling bag upstairs will also help make the recycling process easier.
Know what can be Recycled
Having a clear understanding of what can and can’t be recycled will also help speed things up.
