Our family has resolved to try to reduce our rubbish this year. We’ve re-familiarised ourselves with what can be recycled and we’re purchasing goods with less packaging. This morning I was at the grocery store and forgot my reusable bags so instead of resorting to plastic bags I opted for no bags at all – after all I had a trolley and was just taking the goods to the car.
This is our bin today. I’d say about three-quarters full. We’re aiming to be less than half full by the end of the year. I’m confident we can do it especially considering that at the start of the year – only two rubbish collections ago – the lid of the bin didn’t close due to the large amounts of waste.
