A Checklist For Recycling Properly

A Checklist For Recycling Properly


Recycling is something that all of us can do. Whether at home, at work or at school, recycling can help keep our spaces clean and the environment healthy. But do you recycle properly?

At home, for most people, recycling seems to be relatively simple. You throw your recyclable trash and junk items into your blue waste bin and put it out on the curb every week or so. 

Some locations have split bins so that you must put glass, paper and plastic items in different containers. But for most of us, the process is pretty straightforward. 

Except that it isn't really.




Recycling Properly is a Process

There is a lot more to proper recycling than simply throwing all your trash in a blue bin. In fact, not all types of junk and waste material is recyclable. And some items need to be separated properly while others need to be taken directly to a suitable recycling facility.

Keeping track of all the nuances of proper recycling can be a chore so we've put together a quick recycling checklist to aid you in your recycling efforts.

The bottom line here is that you can and should recycle and recycle properly and responsibly. Not only are you helping the environment, you are contributing to the local, regional and national economies as a result. 

In addition, you will be contributing to reducing the amount of raw materials and limited resources used to produce new products and consumer goods. Recycling is going through some growing pains as the recyclers work to keep up with the growing demand and shifting markets.

An article at Citylab.com notes,

"While recycling centers have been closing down in some places, like in greater Birmingham, Alabama, and around California, programs elsewhere are stepping up their efforts to decrease contamination levels in the recycling bin by educating residents about their role in the recycling process. This emphasis on outreach suggests a heavier onus on citizens to stop tossing items absentmindedly into the bin, and start disposing of them in a more informed, deliberate way."
