Recycling at home? Twin your bins!
Instead of absentmindedly tossing your junk mail, unwanted magazines, or empty containers in your trash can, throw them in the recycling! Wherever there is a trash can in your house, make sure there is a recycling receptacle right next to it: in the bathroom, in the garage, under the sink, etc. Making it just as convenient to recycle as it is to throw away will make recycling into a second-nature habit for your family in no time.
Extra tip: Wherever there is dirty paper, like in the bathroom, make sure you have a place to put organics as well. Soiled paper should be composted!
