Recently commented with a fellow blogger on a recycling issue while on the road. What to do with accumulated recyclables? I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately and it concerns me some. I’m an avid recycler/reuser, and it’s already a little overwhelming in my present little studio apartment. If I forget the recycling day then more recyclables pile up.
If that happens and it gets a little out of control, I’ll at least take my can opener and open both ends of a can and crush it flat, making way more room. But what about the regular glass, like jelly jars, pickle jars, etc. stuff you can get your deposit back on? And cardboard, like cereal cardboard or mail, receipts, etc.
I’ve gotten a few good tips from my blogger friend which helped me out some with this issue. Once I get my Class B van I’ll be wayyyyyy smaller than I am now in my little studio apartment. There wont be a stitch of room to accumulate much at all! So, One: Cut back even further on product containers and packaging. Two; Seek out recycling stations and centers in advance. And Three; Eat Out!! YEY! NO!! Not a good idea Lorraine, LOL!! Too expensive and super unhealthy! So, Three would be to follow the first two, minimal footprint
This will be my rule of thumb once I’m established in my new, or used, Class B Motorhome.
As seen in one of the pics here, many camping facilities have recycling centers available on premises.
Also, the other images display recycling bins possibly available in towns, etc. But do research first and find out the legal stuff first.
