    Yep, I usually do, although I'm not excessive about it. When I know something can be recycled, I usually throw it there after. I don't like how many humans "waste" stuff...

    Since I've really realized it, I also don't like how everything is over-packaged, but that's another story... [​IMG]

    Of course. I don't see why anybody shouldn't. Lazyness is just not an excuse here.

    Assuming you're like the rest of the UK they collect recycling from your door! Tsk!
    Solution; 2 bins. Side by side [​IMG]

    [Edit] Have just realised that our indoors recycling bins are, well, cardboard boxes. Oh the irony [​IMG]

    Recycling is a piece of cake, everyone should do it. Instead of throwing that can in the garbage you through it in the bin next to the garbage can... problem solved. [​IMG]

    I try to as much as possible, but it's kinda hard when the city only provides garbage cans and no recycle bins whatsoever. :'(

    Even better (kinda). You can keep all the bottles and cans for yourself, and cash em in [​IMG]
    Or.. convince the city that recycling is neccessary! [​IMG]

    Recycling's just a waste time and money. Better to burn it and put the generated energy to good use.

    Depends. Recycling glass, paper and biologic waste makes a lot of sense. Recycling most of the other kinds of waste doesn't seem to work as well.

    Here in the US, I only recycle cans and similar item. However, I moved to Stockholm a while ago and there we sort our garbage in two piles: Burnable, and not burnable. [​IMG]

    We definitely recycle in my house, although my fiance is really bad at it!

    It isn't very hard as our local council provides us with two separate bins for our rubbish and our recycling.
