After watching my recycling bin drive past and empty the bins on our street (yes, another action packed day for me) I was wondering how many people actually put the proper things in recycling bins.
So, do you recycle properly? Do you wash out the bottle and remove the bottle tops like you are supposed to? Do you remove all staples and tape from boxes like you are supposed to? Do your greasy pizza boxes get put in the normal bin like they are supposed to?
Poll coming for those who wish to remain anonymous. Choices will be
- Yes, I recycle 100% properly (which means you rinse and remove anything that is not allowed)
- Ok, SOME stuff slips in there unwashed, unstapled etc.
- I never rinse or remove anything (which means you only put in recyclables but never rinse them out or remove staples/tape/pizza boxes etc.)
- No, the recycle bin often has general household stuff in it (which means if your normal bin is full, the odd bag of food rubbish etc. goes in the recycle bin)
