Something I never thought about until a year ago when someone I knew who works for the Dept of Recycling shared this tip with me.
When choosing a recycling bin for inside your home or office, most people choose a round bin or a bin that is narrow in width.I was told (and I have seen the difference)to get a bin that papers can lay flat in!! (Most papers are 8 X 11)
What does that do?
You can put more paper in the bin AND lets trip of emptying. If you crumple paper and throw it in, the paper takes up space, fills up faster and you have to empty more frequently.
