What will happen if we don’t recycle?

Recycling is a very important part of all our lives. It is more important now than ever that we all make the extra effort to reduce, reuse and recycle. Recycling as much as we can will help sustain and preserve our environment and natural resources. If we don’t recycle our landfills will fill up and become crowded with all kinds of rubbish that cannot be recycled as well as items that can be recycled, including plastics and paper. Chemicals coming from the rubbish in our landfills are very toxic. The rubbish sitting in landfills releases methane and carbon dioxide as it decomposes. These toxic gases contribute to greenhouse gases which affects the ozone layer. An example of this is plastic bottles and plastic bags. Plastics can take up to three decades to decompose. We can avoid sending plastics to landfill and instead make sure they are placed in the correct recycling bins at home. Also, we can make an effort to use reusable bags when we do our shopping. While many retail outlets have moved to not using single use bags, there are still a few that are and we can do our bit by refusing the plastic bag and taking our own reusable bag. Reducing consumption of these items could be the use of reusable plastic drink bottles and containers. Here at Unlimited Bins we do take recycling seriously and we continue to do our part in reducing the carbon footprint. We offer our customers the option of hiring bins for green waste only at a cheaper rate or concrete only bins also at a cheaper rate. Although we make every effort to recycle what we can, there are some things that don’t get recycled and these will end up in landfill. There are many ways that we can all recycle to help reduce landfill sizes and we all need to continue to do our best to ensure we maintain the positive recycling efforts.
