Recyclable and non-recyclable wastes
Many of our clients inquire about wastes that can be recycled. In this post, we seek to shed light on the subject, so that we can help you know how to sort waste at your home.
It is not good to place recyclable and non-recyclable material in one bin.
Why is recycling important?
Our activities lead to more garbage now more than ever before. We need to embrace recycling efforts to lower the amount of waste that we produce over time.
When items are recycled, there is a resulting decrease in the energy required to make new products. So, what materials can be recycled?
One of the paramount measures in the process of waste reduction is recycling. Through recycling, waste is given a new life as a new product. Waste papers are recycled into new papers. Waste metal is recycled into new metal products or parts.
A few materials that can be recycled include:
Paper and cardboard
Most refuse centres allow cardboard and paper for recycling. Paper material includes old magazines, office papers, newspapers, envelopes and old letters.
Cardboard is likely to be used in wrapping boxes, thick sheets, and boxes used to package common household and office items.
Glass is accepted by most refuse centres. When heat is applied to glass, the material melts into a substance that can be manipulated to form different products. Glass is therefore a valuable product when it comes to recycling.
However, not all glass items can be recycled. Recyclable glass includes plates, bottles, windows, glass sheets, jars and tempered glass.
Generally, products made from steel, copper and aluminium can be recycled. The compensation for such materials depends on the weight of the metal waste that you have in your bin.
The final cost depends on the type of metal and its condition at the time of recycling.
Steel products such as oil cans, kitchen appliances, tins, cutlery, wires, cables and cooking ware can be recycled.
Copper metals such as electrical wires, copper alloys and water pipes are also accepted for recycling.
Aluminium foils, aerosol cans and food wraps may also be recycled.
Some materials may not be accepted byrefuse centres. Biodegradable substances and soft plastic are generally not recycled. It is important to place such items in a distinct bin. Avoid mixing recyclable and non-recyclable items in one bin.
Items that cannot be recycled include:
- Coffee and juice cups sold by takeaway parlours
- Plastic bags
- Medical waste
- Plastic straws
