You might be asking the question, “What’s the best way to protect and preserve the environment?” One common answer will usually ring in your ears – recycling.
Indeed, recycling is one of the best solutions when it comes to protecting the environment. It reduces the amount of trash that we have, it ensures that our garbage is segregated properly and we get the chance to reuse what we can reuse, resulting not only in reducing the waste products that we usually dispose but it also gives room for an efficient way of lessening the garbage that we throw out and even gives us monetary compensation in return.
One of the common ways that we can help in the effort of recycling is by the use of skip bins where we can properly dispose of our trash, segregate them properly and reuse the recyclable materials that we find useful.
What are the cities doing in their efforts in recycling? Here are just some communities where recycling and reusing is promoted in their own methods:
Fresno, California – Recycling doesn’t need to be uptight or strict in its methods. As such, Fresno has utilized a more creative approach in their recycling efforts as they make use of artistic colors in their recycling programs in the shade of blue. The recycling skip bins are colored blue so that the people are aware where they can dispose of their recyclable trash and feel assured that it can still be reused. These blue skip bins can easily be found in locations like the airports or the conference centers in Fresno. This was done with the support of the California Department of Conservation to strengthen the recycling programs in the city. You can dispose of your empty beverage containers by accessing these blue skip bins.
Fremont, California – In Fremont, they released their recycling program facility known as the Fremont Recycling and Transfer Station or FRTS. During its first 12 months of operation, the FRTS was in charge of collecting as much as 14,000 tons of recyclable materials like paper which saved several hundreds and thousands of trees. Even plastic bottles of various beverages like soda for one generation was recycled and tailored into at least 68,000 fleece jackets. With that amount of success in the recycling market, it’s no doubt that Fremont’s efforts are working.
San Antonio, Texas – The community of San Antonio, Texas is no stranger when it comes to recycling. With the establishment of its 18 recycling centers, San Antonio is considered as one of the front running cities in the efforts of recycling. Just a few of these recycling centers include the Wonderful Northwest, the Longhorn, the Citywide Metal, the Oncore Metal and the Toucan. These recycling centers which can be found all over the city promote the proper segregation of garbage and recycling. They also accept a wide range of recyclable materials like paper, scrap metals, plastics, batteries, aluminum and tin cans, radiators and more.
What these communities promote is the collaborative effort in recycling. For the betterment of the environment, working hand in hand ensures the success in protecting the environment.
