One of the better way practicing waste segregation is to start it at home.We do have garbage for cans,left over,plastic and hazardous like diapers and my wife napkins.How about you guys? Do you practice this kinda of discipline?

Hi agihcam. Here in our place, Tagaytay City. We have been practicing an ordinance wherein we should segregate our garbages. Those that can be recycled, we sell to junk shop like cans, plastic bottles. While those that are biodegradable, we bury them on soil to be used as fertilizer, coz we have fruit bearing trees and vegetables around our house.

Hi there agihcam! We do segregate our waste. It is a requirement. In fact, it is a City Ordinance. The garbage collector will not pick up unsegregated waste. When it was just implemented, a lot of people here in our city had a hard time complying. But now, I think 99% are complying.

Absolutely. It is law now here to separate everything and bins are tagged and you get fined if the wrong rubbish is in the wrong bin but I was recycling years before they bought this into effect. When I say here I mean UK by the way. I have one for cans, glass, cardboard, paper, material, batteries, you name it I have it. Ellie :D

My family recycles almost everything, and we have different totes that we use according to the bins at the recycling station. So everyone sorts out their stuff that needs to be recycled accordingly, anything that can't be recycled goes into the main garbage. My visitors always ask which goes where when disposing of their trash since recycling varies by location.
