Recycling Tips 101…

Friday, March 6th, 2009

Recycling is easy.  The hardest part though is making it a habit.  But hopefully, these handy hints and tips will make your life a little greener:

1.  Put your recycling box next to your bin.  That way, it’s as easy to recycle as it is to throw away.
2.  Glass jars will need a quick rinse out, but you don’t need to bother with taking any labels off-the recycling process will remove these.
3.  A lot of universities have prizes for the hall that does the most recycling-if your uni doesn’t do it yet, try suggesting it!
4.  Put a recycling bin in your bathroom-put all the toilet rolls and empty shower gel bottles in there then move them to the kitchen to recycle.
5.  Remember, recycling doesn’t just mean throwing away.  Take any unwanted clothes, books and CDs to your local charity shop to carry on doing your bit for recycling.
