Guidelines to sort your waste
Ideally, you should get separate labeled bins to be able to sort and discard your trash in them. Don’t worry about buying new colored bins if you haven’t got any other alternatives. Remember, buy only when necessary.
- Food scrapes: Food waste can be recycled but usually it is composted. Composting can be learned quickly, there are many online tutorials. If you don’t have the room or use for compost, separate this waste in an organic bin. Here you can include paper bags, paper napkins, and other easily biodegradable waste.
- Recycle List: there are several materials that are recycled everywhere. The top list includes paper, aluminum, glass, plastic, boxes, among others. Included in plastic, there are cereal box liners, plastic grocery bags, and some plastic food containers.
- Electronics: small electronics with cords, cell phones, computers and any other electronic devices should be taken to the Community Recycling Center or any other organization in your county that is in charge of receiving these items.
