How to recycle

It is very important to take items such as cans out of the environment. Every day we use soda cans or vegetable cans in our household. Imagine the amounts of trash in the world that is not being recycled. Cans can be used for many things. Recycling is a good way to make other items out of the trash you are tossing away. Cans may be melted down and made into something else. Plastic bottles can become things such as stuffing for pillows, chair coverings, furniture, and even fibers in clothing. A cardboard box can be more than just a poster or sign. Think about the possibilities before tossing these items into the waste management garbage. You may need a little space to start recycling but the environment and your children will thank you later.

How to recycle is simple. Purchase three cans to use for three different types of trash items. Plastic goes into one trash can. Put bottles from soda, plastic bottles from things such as shampoos, detergents, and milk jugs. Make sure to rinse these items out so you will not be smelling sour milk. Another trash can may be for paper products such as toilet paper rolls, old newspapers, paper plates, and books. It is not a good idea to toss trash such as old diapers or meat trays that are dirty into these cans. If you are going to recycle, make sure to separate the good from bad recyclables.

A dumpster is a great idea once you have these cans full several times. Tie up the trash out of the trash cans and put in a dumpster to go to the recycling center. Some recycling centers may pay for some recycled trash but most do not. Most recycling centers will require people to pay to dispose of the trash.
