The community we live in now doesn’t recycle, so it’s kind of hard to keep up with it… 5 years ago
What a wonderful site, people giving items away for nothing? I was dubious but it seems to work. Especially with things which are big or itens you don’t want to take to the charity shop.
I even got rid of my faulty DVD player to someone who could fix it!
The slightly Tackier stuff I take to my local jumble sale.
It’s all recycling. 6 years ago
that people in flats can have recycling boxes for kerbside collection, I’ve got to ring the local council I’ll do that Monday.I can put in the box:
- Newspapers and magazines
- Junk mail & scrap paper
- Plastic bottles minus lids
- Food and drinks cans
- Cardboard, cards and card packaging
- Directories but not the yellow pages
- Cartons – milk or juice for example
- Glass (that really surprised me)
- Black sack of carrier bags
- Plastic packaging
Anyway I’ll tell you more on Monday! 6 years ago
of all the recycling collection points in portsmouth the local Asda collects: glass, aluminium cans, steel cans, plastic and paper. That should do me for now. i’ll have to put everythind into different bags and carry them to the recycling point. 6 years ago
I have a huge problem with this with no kerbside collection and no car it’ll be hard to get the recyclable stuff to where the recycle containers are.
I do use the freecycle network; throw junk to the jumble sales or charity shops. But I still end up with too much rubbish in my bin each week.
My goal is to reduce the amount of rubbish by half by this time next year.! 6 years ago
A household carbon footprint is the quantity of CO2 emitted to the atmosphere as a result of energy use, transportation and waste disposal in one year.
My carbon footprint was estimated to be about 6 tonnes. To put that in perspective, if you drove a mid-size car 1.5 times around the world, it would emit roughly 20 tonnes of CO2.
Why not calculate your own carbon footprint? It’s a bit of an eye-opener.
