Recycling Tips

These tips will help you reduce, reuse, recover, and recycle your housegood goods.

  • These waste items can be modified and used for planting seedlings: egg cartons, tetra-pak cartons, plastic bottles, plastic takeaway containers, the cardboard centres from toilet rolls, and ice cream containers.
  • Coffee grounds, tea bags, and eggshells can all be put into your garden. Each naturally decomposes and adds nutrients to your soil. Compost does not have to take up unnecessary room at the landfill.
  • Your computer might still be usable even though you're upgrading. Consider recycling it by donating it to someone else.
  • Aluminium trays from pies and cakes make ideal 'drip saucers' to put under potted plants in the house.
  • Used oil filters are processed at recycling mills for use in new metal products such as rebar, nails, and wire. Recycle your oil filters.
  • After children's drawings and paintings have been displayed for a while, they can be used to wrap presents. This also makes the present special.
  • A better way to keep gadgets out of the landfill is to try to repair them. Resist the urge to constantly upgrade. Reuse them instead.
  • Recycle your toothpaste tube. Cut off the cap end, wash it out, then tack it to a corkboard as a pencil holder in your garage.
  • Rechargeable batteries used around the home can also be recycled. The recovered batteries are used to make new batteries and stainless steel products.
  • One recycled glass bottle saves enough energy to power a computer for 25 minutes. Please take your bottles to the depot.
  • Plastic bags aren't just for lining garbage cans. Tie plastic bags over nearly ripe fruit to keep out bugs and guard against frost damage.
  • The cadmium from old phone batteries is more toxic than lead and can leach into the groundwater. Recycle those batteries!
  • Newspapers can be recycled and used as mulch. This will reduce evaporation by up to 70%, cutting water use in the summer months.
