Adding Recycling Bins in the Bathroom

You’re probably familiar with keeping recycling bins in the kitchen and garage, making it easy for you to recycle drink cans, plastic food containers, and paper products. There’s one room in the house that’s criminally overlooked when it comes to recycling, however, and that’s the bathroom. Here are some recycling tips for effective bathroom recycling. 

What Can Be Recycled in the Bathroom?

There are many products in the bathroom that can be and should be recycled. Shampoo, conditioner, and body wash usually come in plastic bottles that can go into the recycling bin. Soap bars come in cardboard boxes that can also be recycled, along with cardboard boxes for toothbrushes, razors, feminine hygiene products, and more. Although these boxes are small, they can quickly fill up a landfill in large numbers, so they should be recycled whenever possible.

Make Recycling Easy

One of the most effective recycling tips that can be given is to make recycling as easy as possible. If you don’t have quick and easy access to a recycling bin, it can be extremely tempting just to put everything in the nearest trash can. To make it easier to get into the habit of recycling whenever possible, set up recycling bins in any room where you’re regularly producing recyclable waste. This includes the bathroom as well.

Smaller bins can be hidden under the sink to keep the bathroom from becoming too cluttered. If you don’t have room under the sink, you can also get small, stainless steel recycling bins that will match the aesthetics of your bathroom. By simply adding a recycling bin to your bathroom, you can practice good bathroom recycling habits.

After you’ve put things in your recycling bin, you want to make sure that it’s being regularly picked up and disposed of. Contact Sunrise Sanitation Services for reliable recycling pickup at reasonable prices.
