What You Should Recycle at Home
Recycling is an effective and simple way to help the environment. It is something the entire family can do too.
We tend to think of recycling in terms of separating our items out and taking them (or having them picked up and sent to) a recycling center to be turned into something else.
This is a great way to help the environment, but what about things that can’t be put in a recycling bin? It’s important to recycle correctly!
