Tip 1: Reduce Your Waste

One of the best ways to help your waste management and recycling is by preventing the need for waste as mush as possible. One of the first recycling tips for this is to reduce how many products you use and consume on a regular basis.

One way to reduce waste is to keep a record of how much you use on an average day or week. You can observe the waste loads and figure out ways to lower the quantity of said waste. Having good storage for items with a decent shelf life and buying items in multi-use packaging are also perfect methods for reducing waste.

Tip 2: Reuse Your Waste

The second recycling tip that follows from reducing waste, is just as important. Not all waste is necessarily worth getting rid of, some can be adapted about your house. For instance, the following items can be adapted and reused:

  • Plastic bottles can become an extra pot or container for flowers
  • Glass jars can be reused for candles or lights
  • You can use the old papers to dry out wet shoes
  • Old butter boxes can be used to store pens and pencils

These recycling tips will make your waste shrink down and create a steadier traffic in the amount of rubbish you need to crack down on. Find creative ways through social media and blogs on how you can effectively reuse items around your house.

Tip 3: Sell Your Scrap Metal & Old Electrics

If you end up amongst a lot of old metal appliances, you could be in for a decent sized payout. Scrap metal can be sold quite easily, through scrap metal yards in which they will be remade and reintroduced in to society.

Metal is the most easiest materials to recycle, it has the ability to be remade over and over again. Because of its high value in trade industries, you may as-well get more out of it by trading it, which in practice keeps it away from landfill.
