Different Ways to Recycle
We understand that recycling can sometimes be confusing, and that it could be often difficult to determine whether you are doing things correctly.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
There are three key factors you should consider when thinking of different ways to recycle your materials—The 3 R's: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.
Reduce: You can minimize the amount of waste you create by carefully choosing which kind of scrap to throw away. From making slight alterations to your shopping list or opting to go "paperless" in the office, you can significantly reduce the amount of waste we have in landfills.
Reuse: Whether at home or at work, many items you can find all around you can be repurposed for different things. Before throwing away used packaging and paper products, electrical equipment, and many other items, think of how they can be reused or donated to others first.
Recycle: Recycling is important in conserving natural resources and maintaining environmental sustainability. It greatly contributes towards the environment and could even help increase your revenue! Choosing to buy and use recyclable goods, as well as bringing them to an experienced and reliable company like Elgin Recycling & Scrap Metal are the first steps in sustainable recycling.
