Recycling Balers in All Different Sizes
QCR balers & compactors.
Below is an image of the things that you can recycle and the things that you cannot. It is smart to limit the trash can items, because it can save you money. How, you say?
In the United States, and specifically California all recyclable items are Free (technically). How it works is that you are charged based on the size of the garbage can you signed-up for. You can have as big of a recycling bin as they come, but you don’t have to get the same size garbage can. So most people opted for small size garbage cans and bigger size recycling balers.
We have been really good, and it's all about being conscientious of what we throw into the trash balers. We are using the next to smallest size of the garbage can, and now that our family had shrunk another person, I think we can even go smaller. Most of the time we still have a lot of room in the current size trash can we have. Bottom line is, the less trash the smaller the trash bin, and the less you’ll have to pay, hence you will save money every week.
Saving money isn't the only reason to find more recyclable items, there is the bigger picture, which is to sustain our environment, and this is everyone's responsibility.
