Reducing your residential carbon footprint is becoming increasingly important as the effects of global warming become more visible. It is important to understand how your actions impact the environment and find ways to reduce your carbon emissions. Residential waste management is an important part of this process, as proper waste management practices can significantly reduce your carbon footprint.

One of the simplest and most effective ways to reduce your carbon footprint at home is to learn how to recycle properly. Unfortunately, many people make the mistake of putting items in the wrong bins or failing to clean and sort their recyclables.

To get started, check with your local recycling program to learn which materials they accept and how to properly prepare them for collection. Common items that can usually be recycled include paper, cardboard, glass, aluminum cans, and plastic bottles. Make sure to clean and sort your recyclables. Rinse out containers and remove any food or debris before placing them in the recycling bin. Sort different materials into separate containers or use a single bin with dividers. Make a conscious effort to reduce your consumption of single-use plastics and other materials that cannot be recycled easily. Choose products with minimal packaging and opt for reusable items such as water bottles, grocery bags, and food containers.
