Recycling at Home5 Easy Tips to Recycling at Home

We can all use these easy tips to recycling at home to make the world a cleaner place. A great start for every room is to only purchase as many products as you can that are eco-friendly or recyclable. For example, try Energizer’s longest lasting alkaline ever, their new EcoAdvanced batteries. Be guilt free by taking something old and making it new like by trying these new batteries. Get rid of those unused batteries!

Recycling at Home

Here’s five tips to recycling in your kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen will most likely be your recycling hub so be sure you have separate bins for your recyclables and waste.

1. Recycle in the Kitchen – Be sure you are recycling easy things like cans, plastic and glass bottles, paper and cardboard. Also, be sure you wash out any residue in glass or plastic bottles. Yes, this makes an extra step but it is important to the recycling process. Recycling at Home

Here’s some other things we should be recycling in our kitchen:

  • cartons
  • foot tins
  • sauce jars
  • cleaning bottles, such as dish soap
  • empty aerosols

Something I have always done is cut plastic pop can holders. Have you seen what these can do to wildlife if they get around their necks? Cut them up especially since you are unable to recycle them.Recycling at Home

2. Recycle in the Living Room – I’m sure you have a magazine holder or end table that is catching all those old magazines and newspapers. Why not clean those out and recycle them? You can also recycle cardboard tissue boxes. My husband tends to leave mail by his chair. Recycle it!

3. Recycle in the Bedroom – In the bedroom, you can recycle cardboard and paper tags off new clothes and broken plastic hangers. Don’t forget any magazines or newspapers that may have made their way to the bedroom. Recycle cardboard packaging from makeup, perfume and other toiletries.

4. Recycle in the Bathroom – It might be a good idea to keep a recycling bin in your bathroom as well as the kitchen. This will be an easy reminder to recycle everything in all the rooms in your house. Recycle these items in the bathroom:

  • shampoo and other bottles from the shower or bath tub.
  • soap dispensers
  • cleaning bottles
  • cardboard packing
  • tissues boxes
  • toilet paper roll cardboard cores
  • aerosol cans

5. Recycle in the Garage – There’s lots of nasty chemicals and other things in the garage that are hard on our precious environment. Batteries are something we use a lot of in our household. We love the Energizer’s new EcoAdvanced batteries, available in AA and AAA. EcoAdvanced batteriesThe Energizer EcoAdvanced holds up to 12 years in storage. This is the first battery on the market to use recycled batteries/materials. These are Energizer’s longest lasting alkaline ever. I love that I can grab these new batteries while I’m at Walmart. Plus, there’s always a great selection of these near the checkout aisles.

Tip: Be sure any cans or bottles are empty before recycling.

  1. I ALWAYS cut up the plastic rings, too!! I’ve done it ever since elementary school where they showed us a video of how they impact wildlife! Great tips!! #client

  2. I guess we are doing pretty good because we do try to recycle all these things. We also clean out all our plastic bottles, etc that we disguard as well as soda cans, etc. I will try these batteries soon. These sound like a much better option for batteries. Thank you for sharing

  3. I never thought about recycling all those cardboard backs for items, like backs to makeup and various items that we get. Thanks for those ideas! Great list.

  4. I never thought about cutting up the plastic rings either; good idea! I always drop off old batteries at my local library (where they have a collection drop box for people to drop off batteries). Great ideas, thanks for posting!

  5. We already do 1,2 and 5 but have not got used to recycling the bedroom and the bathroom..as we do not keep a garbage receptacle in either so they just get dumped in the trash..I am more aware now..thank you

  6. For me, 5 Easy Steps Kids Can Take To Be More Green had the best. I’m always looking for more ways to get the kids involved.
