Recycling ideas are plentiful on the internet with more and more people now waking up to the fact that we need to do more for the environment and more to reduce our general cost of living. Recycling paper, recycling metal, recycling wood and other popular products is essential if we are to reduce CO2 emissions into the environment as a whole and not end up with significant fines from the EU. So what can you do?
More and more homes around the UK are already recycling greater and greater amounts of their daily waste from recycling plastic, to recycling cardboard and recycling glass. When you consider that recycled paper uses only 20% of the energy required to create paper from basic pulp this is the kind of savings we can make on a long-term basis. While at this moment in time many of the recycling ideas which are floating around the Internet are attracting some attention, many people are ignoring the recycling craze potentially to their cost in the future.
As local councils around the UK continue to demand more and more recycling of waste, as landfill sites become full, there will very soon become a time when we are all forced to recycle the vast majority of our waste with significant fines for those who fail to hit targets. There is no doubt that a recycling tax is on the way, no matter which government wins the next general election, and UK consumers again will potentially be on the end of a significant hike in the cost of living.
Aside from the fact that we need to increase the amount of material we recycle purely and simply because of the environment there will very soon be a significant increase in the cost of living for those who refuse to recycle as much as possible.
