We haul away a tremendous amount of junk each year, but much of the items we remove can find new life though recycling. It’s something we do ourselves but our customers from Valencia to Van Nuys can turn potential discards into new and useful décor. It just takes some imagination.
When you think of recycling do you sigh and believe that you simply do not have the time or energy to do it? Do you have visions of uncountable thousands of used plastic bottles in some far-away factory prepped to be melted down or shredded into something else? Do you believe that recycling is a task that needs to be tough; otherwise if it’s not hard, then it does not count? I’m ashamed to state that at one time, these were the thoughts that went through my head and they validated my reasons for not recycling. I’m here to inform you that I was mistaken; recycling isn’t something hard, or something you have to go out of your way to take part in and when it’s simple, well, it’s just simple; and it still counts towards recycling.
Here are some of the simple ways I have actually discovered to recycle:
When I leave a space, I have a terrible routine of leaving lights on. I appear to be somebody who, when doing any type of work, whether it’s stripping or writing wallpaper, I need a lot of light around to do it. The first 2 ways I discovered to save energy and count myself in as a “recycler” was to shut off lights as I left a room. Sounds simple? Well, that’s because it is easy. The only thing I needed to do was remind myself that I was no longer going to let energy slip through my fingers by leaving lights burning in a space that nobody was inhabiting.
The fantastic thing is, the times that I have left a light on, I’m provided the last opportunity to stop and turn around and turn off the lights before leaving the space for great. Like I said, it didn’t occur as soon as I thought about my part in the effort to recycle, however it is something I have actually enabled myself to consider on an everyday basis.
The other method I have actually found to easily adhere to this recycling thing is that I changed my lightbulbs. The more recent bulbs utilize up to 75% less energy when lighting a space and they will last up to ten times longer, too.
The good news is this; there are easy methods to stay on track with recycling, and you don’t have to look very far to find them.
I’m here to tell you that I was misinterpreted; recycling isn’t something difficult, or something you have to go out of your method to get involved in and when it’s easy, well, it’s simply simple; and it still counts toward recycling.
I have a dreadful practice of leaving lights on when I leave a room. The first 2 methods I found to save energy and count myself in as a “recycler” was to turn off lights as I left a space. The excellent thing is, the times that I have actually left a light on, I’m given the final opportunity to stop and turn around and turn off the lights prior to leaving the room for great.
