Start Recycling Today

Disclosure: This is a guest post. 

Recycling is a way for you to help the environment by not throwing away items that can be used to make something else. There are a few ways that you can get started at home and with your business. 

First, you need to find out what you can recycle and what needs to be thrown away. Some of the things that you can't recycle can still be used for something else. If you know how to make items out of clothes that are torn or a quick google search can result in a slew of craft projects so you can re-purpose your non-recyclables. Clothing can often be donated to an organization that helps families or to a secondhand store. Most cities have a recycling chart located in a community building or at the solid waste facility.

Some cities offer specific, separate containers so that you can place recyclable items on the sidewalk on garbage day. This makes it easier to get started as you will be given a list of what to place in the container. These items are often glass, paper products and plastic. If your city doesn't offer this service, you can get tall trash cans to keep items separate. Once the cans get full, you can take them to the recycling center yourself.

If your business handles a large amount of materials that are recyclable, perhaps you'll want to consider enlisting the help of Easi Recycling. Sometimes seeking out waste management experts is the right decision to help save your business time, and help the environment in the most effective way possible too.

When we started recycling, it was amazing how much stuff we threw away every week that could be recycled.
