When it comes to protecting the environment, recycling is one of the most fundamental tools available to us. Over the past few years, many households have adjusted their trash management and adopted recycling measures for glass bottles, milk cartons, and certain plastics– but they’re not all you can recycle. Below are three surprising items that most people don’t know can be recycled…
#1 – Crayons
If your kids have tired of crayons or used them past efficacy, then you’ll be pleased to know they can be recycled. There are plenty of recycling centres that will accept crayons, so it’s always worth asking!
#2 – Wine corks
Several recycling initiatives reuse wine corks by grinding them down for reuse; browse local listings to find such a scheme close to you, or just dispose of corks in general recycling waste.
#3 – CDs and CD-Roms
If you have transitioned to digital music, then your CDs and computer CD-ROM discs could find new purpose when stripped down for their component parts. Browse for a specific scheme near you or just include these items in general recycling.
#4 – Electrical items
Gadgets and electronic items can often be recycled or reused, so don’t just throw them away. Browse through the graphic below to see why, and how, you should recycle your electronic waste.
