Bored? Start a Recycling Bin

Recyclilng PersonMake a difference with a recycling bin!

An Alternative to Trash––?

Stop! Don’t throw that away!

“Then, what should I do with it?” you may ask. “It’s just trash.”

You can recycle it, that’s what!

But…you say you don’t have a recycling bin?!? And yet you love the earth, and want it to stick around?

Well, at least that’s easily fixed! Come on, we’ll make one!

How to make a recycling bin

  1. First, my plastic-bottle-using friend, find a large box you aren’t using.
  2. Second, you put your recycling––like that plastic bottle in your hand––in it!

Sooo easy!

And what do I mean by recycling? Well, I mean these things:

Recycling Types 2

Got that? Awesome! If you have any of the items shown above headed for the trash, clean them out, and put them into your new recycling bin, instead! Worried about it getting stinky or yucky? Just rinse out those containers, cans, and jars, and it won’t be a problem.

Then, when you’ve filled it up, either take the box of recycling to your local recycling center, or if your area has recycling pick-up, leave it out on the curb on trash-day.  You can look for your county’s or city’s recycling rules online. It’s that easy!

Note: Some recycling centers take more (or different) items for recycling, so be sure to check out what your local center can take.  That way, you can recycle even more items, or avoid contaminating a load with something that’s not supposed to be in there.

And remember, you’re not doing this for your own gain––although you will have less trash to take out––but to make the world better! Recycling is a huge part of stopping climate change.

And best of all…the polar bears thank you!
