The Last Straw – Tip of the Week

Crush your bottles and cans before recycling them. If your containers are crushed, more recyclables fit in the recycling bin, you can go to the bin less frequently (and if you use a car, that avoids the associated pollution), the bin needs collection less often meaning less driving by the trucks that collect the recyclables, and more materials can be transported to their final destination in the same size transport.

Also, we’re all less likely to find a full bin – meaning less wasted trips to the recycling centre!

Did you know that:

  • Besides the recycling bins at the Panaga Club, you can also deposit recyclables at the BSRC?

  • There is a recycling centre in Kuala Belait that also accepts large glass jars and Tetra packs (cardboard juice and milk containers etc) – please rinse and flatten them. Google “Tzu Chi Recycle Centre Kuala Belait”

  • The Green Depot also accepts recyclables and will pay you a small amount for them. Search for: “recycle centre kuala belait Green Depot”
