Love Thy Bin

Many collection agencies in the UK and all across the United States are using this system to simplify their recycling bin collection process. Residents can place a mixture of recyclable goods into their recycling bins instead of having to separate them as in the past.

Councils across the UK are hoping that single stream recycling will encourage residents to recycle more goods.
