Regan and Erin often get very frustrated by me, or more specifically by my approach to recycling. It's an issue I care very deeply about and I will recycle everything I can. I actually have separate bins in the house for different items: one for glass, one for food & drink cartons, one for plastics, one for paper and cardboard and one for tins and aerosols. They're even colour co-ordinated.
Yes, I know exactly how lame that sounds - both Regan and Erin tell me this. Regan usually huffing it when I ask her to use the correct bin. (I 'dock' her pocket money when she constantly gets it wrong - it's another encouragement to get it right!)

I also have a compostor for food waste. I insist that all clothing is donated as well.

Like I said, it's an issue that's close to my heart. I happen to like this planet, and dislike the abuse our race is causing her. Recycling is just one of the ways, one of the easiest ways to try and help. It gives things a future. Making new products from waste means we don't have to bury or burn it. This saves energy and resources, which is good for the economy and the environment.
Recycling costs less than disposing of waste, and it helps to keep council tax low. According to my local council website "If people in Wandsworth stopped recycling, the council's waste disposal costs would increase by over £1.5m every year. Every extra tonne you recycle currently saves another £58.50."
