All homeowners are encouraged to recycle wherever possible, whether it’s the packaging that their food comes in, the items they’re thinking about throwing away or the products in their gardens. There is always plenty of ‘rubbish’ kicking around the home, either inside or out, but it’s not always easy to convince people to put that ‘rubbish’ into the correct recycling bins or piles so that they can be put to good use in another form.
The garden is one particular example. If you have trees you’ll undoubtedly spend time dealing with countless leaves that fall every autumn and the easy solution is to rake them up, put them in a bin bag and leave it for the collectors to come. An alternative - and a green, eco-friendly one for that matter - is to invest in some kind of storage, or even a compost bin, the sort you might find at your local DIY store, some supermarkets or even on sites such as Garden Buildings Direct or B&Q who will deliver them to you if you’re pushed for time; that will allow you to save those leaves and convert them into compost that can be used to improve the quality of your soil and (hopefully) produce beautiful plants or vegetables.
