Throw away or recyle?

I have been trying to throw away things that aren't able to be used but, sometime I forget to recycle. What about you?

  • i try to recycle
    i try not to throw away
    i donate, or if time do freecycle
    it is amazing people who will try to get something for free even if they do not need it-better chance it does not end up in landfill then
    nice when it goes to someone who can use

  • I recycle, freecycle, donate and try not to throw something away. People will take anything and what we may think is not usable, people can some how find uses for it.

  • we recycle... and I try to buy things that use less packaging. we also compost so we rarely have a full dumpster every week (usually only when we have company)
    our recycling won't take cardboard or glass though and that kind of annoys me!

  • We do not have these services in our town for free, so many people do not have the money to pay someone to come and take the recycles away. I think if it was mandetory and free we would do much better with that. I personally hate throwing anything away that can be re-cycled!

  • I recycle as much as I can. There are some things our town won't pick up so it either gets thrown away or sent with DH to work. He works for a company that's pretty green and they can recycle everything.

  • We take things to the "recycling dumpsters" not sure what they are really called... the things with the smiley faces. We also compost, cloth diaper, and donate anything usable. I have a home daycare as well and usually don't even fill our trash bin weekly.

  • We always recycle. We have a city collection every week so every thing gets tossed into the blue box.
