Easy Ways to Recycle at Home


Recycling at HomeIt can sometimes be overwhelming knowing what can and cannot be recycled, it can also be simple to make small changes that lead to a large decrease in household waste. Here, we share some easy ways to recycle at home. 

When gifting to others, avoid excess packaging and only use wrapping that can be recycled. There are also some inventive ways to wrap a present. For example, you can use a nice scarf to wrap it up as a beautiful, reusable alternative.

Reduce the amount of paper post you receive by going paperless. 

If you have a local milkman, why not try using them? Not only will you get fresh milk straight to your doorstep, but they will also remove the glass bottles for you and you know the materials are reusable so waste is kept a minimum. 

When buying electrical items for outdoors try and opt for solar options instead of battery ran.

Grow your own vegetables and fruit in your own garden. It doesn't matter if you only have a small garden or balcony as some fruit and plants can still grow well in containers or on windowsills. 

Compost when possible. Compost bins are a great place to store your garden waste, vegetable peelings, cardboard, shredded paper and more.

If you have unwanted paper, use it as shopping lists or notepads first until it is full. Alternatively, shred your paper and use the shredding for compost, or stuffing for hampers.  

Stop using cling film and buy reusable covers instead. They act the same as cling film but they are less fiddly to use and do not cause any waste. 

Before you throw anything away stop and think if you can donate it. Furniture can even be donated and sometimes collected from your house, making it an easy thing to do.

There are many everyday items that you can repurpose. For example, clean out old jam jars or candles to repurpose them as storing other items.

If you need to print anything, always double side print, whenever you can, to cut down on paper and ink used.

Pack your lunch in reusable containers rather than using film or tin foil.

When having a clear-out, consider hiring a skip as this can ensure as much as your waste is being recycled as possible.

In your weekly shop, use reusable bags to store your fruit and veg and opt for loose versions to cut down on packaging. 

When buying cleaning products and hand soap among other things, buy refills rather than new products as this is a great way to cut down on packaging. 

Little and often can make a huge impact. By all of us doing our little bit we can significantly recycle more and cut down on waste. These are just some of the ways we can reuse, recycle and reduce waste.
