Every little bit helps, and no doubt about it, once you decide to start recycling you want to recycle anything and everything you can. For the most part, we as a nation have come a long way in our efforts and capabilities to recycle just about anything. So if you haven’t already began recycling what better time to start than now, after the Christmas holiday. That mountain of wrapping paper, boxes, and tags is a great place to start. What you can’t reuse for next gift giving season can go in the recycle bin. If you’re fortunate, as we are in our little burg, you have a curbside recycling service through your waste removal company. If not, more than likely there’s a recycling bin station nearby. When recycling first started people had to separate and sort their recyclables, now thanks to advances in technology there is single stream recycling; you don’t have to waste time sorting, just toss them all in one bin. This new convenient ease in recycling has resulted in recycling rates going up by more than thirty percent. Remember, recycling doesn’t have to be just about paper, plastic, glass and cans anymore. Share your unwanted furniture, books, electronics, toys and clothing with local charities. The giving shouldn’t stop with the holidays.
