Recycling is a small step toward making the world a better place. Climate change is real, and Australia has taken a brunt of the impact. That includes everything from the dying Great Barrier Reef to exacerbated wildfires.
Recycling can mitigate these problems, in fact we ensure that our Skip Bins Epping services recycle approx 80% of waste collected. For starters, it minimizes the number of harmful chemicals, gases, and products manufacturers and consumers release into landfills and native habitats. It also preserves natural resources as people reuse products instead of relying on new raw materials.
Cans, bottles, cartons, juice boxes, and poppers are eligible containers for recycling. Residents of Epping, NSW will receive a refund if their containers are in usable condition and have a label. Please make sure they are empty, too as recycling contamination ruins a significant portion of recyclables every day.
Some items are non-refundable, but people can still recycle them. That includes milk jugs, juice containers, and glasses for wine, spirits, or cordials. Generally speaking, refundable items are between 150 millilitres and three litres.
Taking a little bit of time to recycle correctly can make a world of difference. One of the essential parts of the process (hopefully) happens before people even reach the recycle station. During the week, people should sort plastics and cans.
Keeping these materials separate will save time when people return and earn for their recyclables. It also helps recyclers manage and process items quickly after deposits. Note that bottle lids are only recyclable if people leave them on and express bulk depots do not require sorting.
Also, make sure to check containers are eligible. Again, ineligible containers are a hassle to remove. Meanwhile, this stage is also the perfect time to ensure the insides do not contain any excess liquid or food waste.
Finally, take the rubbish home from the recycle station. If someone has an ineligible container or cardboard box, they should bring them home and place them in curb side recycling. The goal of Return and Earn is to make the world a cleaner and greener place, and that is only possible if people do not add to the waste load.
