Recycling is one of the best things you can do to have a positive environmental impact. However, it’s hard to stay motivated when you don’t see an immediate improvement each time you put your bins out.
However, there are some great ways to keep yourself in the habit of recycling.
In this article, Adlington Skip Hire – Chorley-based waste disposal specialists providing services across Lancashire and Greater Manchester – introduce a few ways in which responsible waste disposal can be made fun for all members of your household.
Look for containers that add to your decor
It’s always best to invest in separate indoor bins for each category of recyclable material, so you don’t need to pick recyclables out of your general waste to take them to your wheelie bins – or leave them sitting on a kitchen counter until you’ve accumulated enough for a trip outside.
There are plenty of attractively-designed recycling bins available – many of which are comprised of a single unit separated into handy compartments for your convenience. It’s up to you to choose one that suits your general aesthetic.
Of course, if none are exactly when you want, you can always make or decorate your own!
From our time providing skip hire Wigan to Leyland and all of the surrounding areas, we’ve learned that different councils separate recyclables in different ways – so be sure you use the correct bins for each type of waste.
Invest in fun gadgets
Everyone loves a gadget. When it comes to recycling, there are numerous devices you can use to make the chore easier- and much more fun! These include fantastic crushers to help you fit larger numbers of tins and cans into your bins, specialist composting containers and more.
Try a few craft projects
Recycling doesn’t just mean throwing things in wheelie bins. Why not reduce your general waste by re-using old cereal boxes, plastic bottles and toilet roll tubes in some fun art and craft sessions?
It’s an easy way to entertain the kids, too!
Work out your real world impact
Recycling is much more fulfilling when you can quantify the good that it’s doing. Take a few minutes to research what can be achieved as a result of recycling?
How many homes could be powered with the energy conserved? How many trees could be saved by recycling paper and cardboard? You’ll find all of this information online – and what you read will likely give you a bit of a boost!
