    Anyone else making an effort in doing some recycling?

    For the last 3 months or so, me and my missus have seperated our cardboard/paper/plastic bottles etc. and it's reduced our household waste to just one bag a week, this use to be 2-3 bags. And we make a visit to the recycle bins maybe once a fortnight.

    Doing a little to help the environment. :icon_thumright:

    Heh! I remember a Dilbert strip about that last year.

    I fill my recycling bin pretty much every fortnight with paper, tins & plastics, and maybe one carrier bag of non-recycleable in the same time.

    Shame our council doesn't take bottles & jars...

    Cheers,

    Yeah I do it :yes:

    All glass and plastic bottles etc go in a green box, and papers and card go in a green bag. It's so easy it's rude not to!

    How strange, but I was just looking this up on the net, as im really frustrated with the collections being all out of schedule now coz of the **** weather!!!

    But yea, im bigtime into recycling all my bottles, metals, cardboard etc, its really good and makes a huge difference, I now ony fill a black bag every two weeks!!!

    Although it is just me and the missus....

    Yep, I'm a big recycling fan.

    I recycle every possible thing I can, and luckily we have an enthusiastic council and great amenity tip just down the road.

    I compost tons of stuff too.

    I separate it too - our council collects bottles separately, card / paper & general waste, so we do it all, makes it easy.

    That isn't good.

    The Mrs and I have been recycling for years here in Fareham.

    I guess as Hampshire have energy generating incinerators for our non-recycled waste, at least that can generate power if they have to burn it rather than find a buyer for the recycled materials.
