Recycling is one of the most important ways we can all make a big difference and reduce our country’s carbon footprint, but everyone has a role to play. In 2003, the Parliament passed the Municipal Waste Recycling Act. The main purpose of this law is to compel local authorities to provide adequate recycling options for local residents. Additional bins should be provided so that people can recycle at least two of the materials. It starts with an aluminum drink box / plastic bottle and cardboard / paper.
Since then, several cities have also increased their residents’ recycling options, allowing a greater variety of materials to be recycled. Others have enlisted the help of private companies and installed household trash cans in easy-to-reach locations. Material recycling facilities such as plastic, glass, cardboard, used clothes and paper are readily available.
If asked to make a list of products you can recycle, you will likely create a similar list. However, this is definitely a list that needs to be added regularly if we are to help save the planet. To keep you updated, we’ve created our own list. You probably already know a few.
- Nylon bag
- Pens, ballpoint pens, and staples
- Aluminum foil
- Printer cartridges
- Used furniture
- Cell phone
- Cardboard box
- White stuff
Getting rid of large items like utensils and furniture can be tricky, especially if you have a small vehicle. You may wish to rent a van. However, this can be very expensive, time consuming, and demanding.
Another solution is to use a reliable skip hire service like the one you can get from Clearabee, UK’s leading waste disposal company which has its own recycling plant.
Tips for using a skip hire service for your recyclable waste
Many of the items on the above list are small and can easily be transported to the nearest recycling center, e.g. printer cartridges, pens, cell phones, glasses and batteries. You can also put it in your pocket quickly and take it to the recycling bin at your local grocery store.
Larger items such as junk furniture, utensils and carpets cannot fit in the trunk of your car, making them difficult to throw away.
A very flexible and convenient solution is to rent a skip. You can have skips delivered to your door so you don’t have to take your trash elsewhere. It is also an affordable and time-saving solution. Your skip can be delivered immediately. Skips come in a variety of sizes so you can choose the one that best fits your needs. Whether you have multiple old washing machines or a house full of old carpets, there is a skip you can use. With an entry pass in your aisle and not an offsite, you can arrange any licenses as needed. This includes suspension of bays and permits to find skips on public highways.
Luckily, Clearabee can help you with items like unwanted furniture, utensils and carpets.
