Tiny Trash Can recycle less

2019 recycling (3 of 4)

Having a tiny trash can doesn’t mean I recycle more, it means I recycle less! 💪 I just rolled my recycling bin to the curb today—for the third time this year! 😁

My recycling bin is mostly full of cardboard and paper, including 3 months’ worth of soy milk cartons and lots of carryout pizza boxes 😆 I’ve all but eliminated my plastic recycling thanks to my zero waste lifestyle 🙌

Recycling systems aren’t perfect, which means a lot of recyclable material never actually gets recycled. (Only 9% of plastic actually gets recycled!) Try to refuse, reduce and reuse before you recycle 👍
