With everyone "Going Green" these days I thought our family would jump on the bandwagon and start our own recycling program. We have garbage pick up once a week with no recycling. We usually had about 7 or 8 bags of trash and sometimes more if I had cleaned out a closet or my garage that week.
About 2 weeks ago we bought 4 big plastic tubs and labeled them with Cans, Plastic, cardboard and Paper. I was amazed at how much of our trash could be recycled. After about a week of recycling we had 4 bags of trash to take to the curb. The bins were slowly getting filled.
This is what they look like today. I will be making a trip to our local recycling center today to drop everything off. The kids have had a great time putting everything in the correct spot. One of the teachers collects the tabs off of cans so we have been pulling those off for her. We have also done a better job of getting the Box Top for Education labels off the boxes and our school is saving the water bottle labels for more money. So with this new change of recycling in our home we have been able to help out our school and some others.
