Garbage is just a fact of life for humans. I have a trash can so I know I can't recycle every single thing we ever get. I really wish we could all throw it into one machine that filters it all out with nothing going to waste but that would be living in a perfect world. But since I don't have city pick-up I take my stuff to the recycle/trash center (luckily it's all one place) and I usually have more recyclables than trash. I'll even go out of my way to make sure almost every piece of cardboard gets sent to the recyclables not the trash. Some may think it's silly but it saves you a ton of room and a lot less trash bags just throwing it away.
Do you put a lot of effort into recycling?
