Everybody is doing more to recycle these days, and with good reason. Some people do it because they want to, while others also do it because they have to, since there are now laws and ordinances that make recycling mandatory. For instance, in my neighborhood you can get fined if recyclables are found in your garbage. It can definitely be a hassle, but you can make it more simple by incorporating some or all of these 7 ways to make recycling easier.
1. Separate Your Trash
Keeping your trash separate from your recyclable items from the beginning can make this whole process lots easier. So, you should have a bin for everything, just to make it that much simpler. You can have a trashcan, a bin for bottles and cans, and a container for cardboard and paper products as well. That way, everything can go in its place right from the get go.
2. Find Something Nearby
You can also look around so you can find the closest recycling center. No one's really keen on driving around with trash in their car for long periods of times. Plus, having to drive across town to a recycling center can be something of a hassle. Odds are, however, that there's something close by you can reach in just a few minutes.
3. Keep Your Bins Close
In your house, you should find a place for your bins. Typically, the closer they are to the kitchen, the better. That way, you won't have to let things pile up in any of the rooms in your home. That happens in my house all the time, especially with soda cans and cardboard products from food packages and the like.
