Ways You Can Start Recycling in Your Adelaide Home


Bottle Recycling


For those looking to dip their toes in the water in the recycling world, giving bottle recycling a try is the best choice. Plastic bottles are a staple in most homes since nearly all liquid products are sold in these containers. Not only are they abundant in Adelaide households and businesses, but bottles are also easy to sort and rinse. For this reason, bottle recycling is the best place to start for recycling newbies. Once you get used to sorting and dropping off your bottles at a recycling depot, you’ll find recycling your cans, carton, and paper easier as well.

Make Recycling Convenient


Truth is, the more comfortable you make trash recycling for you, the more likely you are to actually get involved. A great way to facilitate recycling in your home is by having recycling bins and trash bags readily available. We suggest placing recycling bins in key areas of your home, such as the kitchen for the most convenience. You should also keep a list handy with all recyclable items so that you can verify you are sorting items correctly.


Recycle Your Paper


Whether you are a student, work from home or at an office, the use of printed documents is widespread. Many forget about the negative impact of paper waste and simply toss a used piece of paper to the trash bin. However, paper is one of the most straightforward items to recycle. We suggest you keep a box or folder near your desk area to store paper documents that still have some blank spaces empty. You can use these sheets of paper to jot down quick notes, make calculations or any other simple task. Once paper is fully used, you can bag it and drop off at a recycling depot
