How to Get Started
First Step: Pick a room
In your home, pick a room that is convenient for you or your family to place recyclables. This could be in the kitchen, garage, back patio, or carport. Make it work for your lifestyle.
Second Step: Pick a container
The containers that you use should be easy to carry and fit into your vehicle. The containers should reflect how much you consume, how large is your household, and how often you want to travel to a Binnie location.
- Garbage Sacks
- Tall trash cans (40-60 gallon)
- Plastic Grocery Sacks
Third Step: Print out a chart
Print out the WCSW Recycle Chart and place by containers. Make sure it is visible to all of your family members and visitors. If your containers are not directly in your home, place another chart on your refrigerator.
Fourth Step: Pick out a location
Type in your zip code to find a Binnie location near your home or a location that you visit frequently.
Advanced Step: Watch what you buy
When buying groceries, pay attention to the packaging. Product packaging accounts for 1/3 of our trash.
Make sure the containers you buy your food in can be recycled in the Binnies.
Helpful Hint: Rinse Right Away
Rinse out food and beverage excess right away from plastic, metal, and glass containers. It will take less of your time and less water to do so.
