Recycling may seem like a tedious hassle, but it is in all our interest to reduce, reuse and recycle where possible and avoid placing incorrect items in the landfill bin. Putting these new habits in place now will reduce costs of waste disposal as the charges placed on landfill of waste are rising by the year. With population growth on the increase, so too is the need for landfill space therefore, costs are inevitable going to rise for disposal of this type of waste.
The only waste to be places in this segregation stream is what cannot be places in the other two streams so think twice before you throw out!
