THE IMPORTANCE OF THE BATHROOM BIN
Your bathroom is full of recyclables, including cleaning products as well as a whole host of empty toiletry bottles. Although many people are already recycling a lot of the products in their bathroom, the bathroom bin can often accidentally make its way into the waste bin without being separated.
There’s a few ways that can really help to reduce the amount of bathroom products that could have been recycled from being thrown away! If you know that you really struggle to remember to separate out your bathroom recyclables, here’s some really handy tips from Recycle Now on how to reduce your waste:
1. GRAB A SECOND BIN FOR EMPTIES
Make use of that wasted space under the sink and get as specific bathroom recycling bin for your plastic bottles, aerosols, toilet roll tubes and toothpaste boxes.
2. REPURPOSE AN OLD BOX OR BASKET
Why not turn a basket with no use into your bathroom recycling bin. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, you could simply choose a storage box with a contemporary feel.
3. STORE YOUR EMPTIES IN A DESIGNATED CUPBOARD
If you aspire to have a streamlined bathroom, stow your empties in a designated space in your bathroom cupboard or drawer until you’ve collected enough to take them to the main recycling bin.
