Reduce, Reuse And Recycleby Michael H. Article Writer
Reduce, reuse and recycle are the three R’s of sustainable household living. Although, it doesn’t seem like much, if each household was observing these three, simple yet so important rules, the world would surely be a cleaner and healthier place.
Reducing the amount of rubbish of organic and non-organic nature your household produces is also likely to bring down the amount of council waste removal fees and taxes, as in many cases these are directly connected with the amount of rubbish a household in the given area produces. So it turns out the three R’s are good for the environment and your pocket.
Sometimes, being efficient in your consumption and disposal patterns means reusing certain products and materials instead of throwing them out. This is the better alternative over giving them up for recycling as the process itself is quite energy and resource intensive. Things like plastics, cardboard and different metals and metal parts can serve another purpose around the house and save you money from buying other items and materials you might have needed.
Obviously, there are things that cannot be reused and have to be disposed of using proper rubbish removal Islington service providers are a good choice, because they not only give you great service prices, but they also guarantee that the waste will reach the intended recycling plants and facilities instead of ending up in the country side or in the local river.
In case you have a large amount of paper from notebooks, magazines, old books and what not, by all means recycle, if the recycling options in your area not too developed yet, try and get in touch with a local farm or animal shelter where the old paper can serve them well for looking after animals.
Paper and plastic bags are a huge problem, paper ones take a large amount of power and resources to produce, and the plastic ones take three hundred years to break down, so reduce or give those up altogether. Fabric shopping bags are cheap and durable, they have more carrying capacity and will serve you well for years to come. Also, opt for reusable products instead of single serving ones, this applies to napkins, cutlery, dishes, cigarette lighters and many more, also you can throw out single use batteries as they don’t have much toxic stuff in them, but don’t throw out rechargeable ones – they must be recycled.
