Recycling tips

There are a number of things we can all do to ensure as much material as possible is recycled. When recycling, keep the following tips in mind! Things like food, wood, clothing, textiles, electronics, books, metal products (like pots, pans, hangers, etc.), and toys shouldn’t be included in your recycling bin.

Plastic bags don’t go in your recycling bin

Plastic bags can be returned to a depot for recycling, but when they are included in your recycling bin it causes big problems in the recycling system. They get mixed with other recyclables making it very difficult to meet the standards of both local and international recycling markets, potentially affecting the recyclability of all the material.

Water recycling involves the recovery or reclamation of water from wastewater for potable (drinking) or non-potable use, which can be supplied back to the water system either directly or indirectly. Eco-friendly car run on electricity or a combination of electricity and hydrogen-based fuel. Both represent low-cost methods of transportation while also reducing the amount of the driver’s carbon footprint on the Earth.
The largest energy savings achieved by recycling are generally for metals, which are often easy to recycle and otherwise typically need to be produced by energy-intensive mining and processing of ore. More people today are switching to LED bulbs (LED stands for Light Emitting Diode) for their benefits. These light bulbs offer similar light with substantially less power, saving between 50-90% of lighting energy costs.
