Are You Using Your Blue Recycling Bins?

by Mary Szpur

Learning to recycle can be a learning process that takes time, but here are a few tips:

Dedicate a plastic bin or a separate garbage receptacle inside your house only for recyclables.

Separate your recyclables first, as you use them. Empty this container when full into the city’s blue recycling bin.

Check all of your plastic containers for the recycling logo and a number on the bottom of the container. Amazing how much of the copious plastic we use can now be recycled.

A little rinsing of cans, plastics, bottles, etc., cuts down on odors.

You should be noticing that the amount of trash you place in the city’s black garbage bin is much reduced!
