Do you recycle your rubbish?
29 May 07
I only recycle plastic bags. I feel bad about throwing it away because I know it's non-biodegradable. I sometimes use it to carry some stuff. We also recycle bottles. Paper, not so much since it's biodegradable.

We keep going round and round regarding this subject in my home. I try to recycle and my hubby will end up tossing it in the trash. I tell him how much money we can save, but he thinks it is an imposition on his part, even if we all do our share. Drives me crazy.

I can imagine that it drives you crazy, Elusive. I keep taking bottles out of the rubbish bin to recycle them, guess who´s put them there.

Hiya pal , taken me just a little while to get to this one lol. As you know we live in Scotland we have a great recycling system here , the local council supply us with wheely bins and boxes , we have a bin on wheels for the cardboard and garden refuse , we also have one for the general rubbish that can't be recycled . we have a box for bottles and jars and recyclable plastic and we have a box for newspapers and magazines , I give clothes we don't use any more to charity and pass furniture etc on to family , so yes we really recycle well pal xx

Yep, you´re right, wee. You are a prime example for recycling. Good to hear that Scotland is concerned about this matter. As you know I live in Spain, there are recycling containers all over the place, but people get mixed up and put the paper in the plastic container, a.s.o. I guess it´s just a question of mentality.

Yes, I recycle. I also reuse as much as possible. I compost my fruit and veggie scraps. I collect bottles and cans for refund. I usually carry a plastic bag with me when I go for a walk in case I find something.
