How Many Wastepaper Bins?
We’re so used to having a little bin in every room, matching them in with our style, relying on them to help keep everything neat and tidy.
It might be time to asked ourselves the question what really happens to what we throw into our wastepaper baskets and other little bins? We’re probably good at recycling in the kitchen, where we might have two or three bins set up for recycling and food waste but what about the bathroom, the bedroom, the living room, or the office, where there’s probably only one?
Do we really separate the rubbish every time we empty it? Or does everything get dumped into black bin bag?
- If you eat an apple in the living room, what happens to the core?
- If you finish your shampoo in the bathroom, what happens to the bottle?
- If the ink runs out on your printer in the office, what happens to the cartridge?
Are there corners of your home where recyclables are sneaking into general waste, then it might be time to rethink your relationship with the wastebasket.
The good news is there is a simple solution and it doesn’t mean saying goodbye to our old wastebasket friends. In fact, it might just mean investing in a few more of them and trying to keep a few more wastebaskets around different rooms of the house, allocating some for recycling and some for food waste. This will help you separate your rubbish with no extra fuss but remember to empty them regularly to stop mess and smells building up.
