Apartment dwellers may think that adopting green living habits won’t make a difference, but they are wrong. Every effort in the area of recycling has an impact on overall energy consumption. Here are some tips for recycling in an apartment complex:
In your apartment, separate recyclables such as glass bottles, aluminum cans and paper from other trash (check containers for recycling symbols if you’re not sure).
Locate the recycling station in your complex and drop off your recyclables.
If your complex doesn’t have a recycling program, work with neighbors to get one stared or drop your recyclables off at a community recycling station.
Donate unwanted household items to charities that support resale.
