Ways to make recycling fun for the whole family

recycling_at_home

It’s no secret that recycling plays an important role in sustainability. Each time that you separate metals from glass and make compost from veggie skins, you’re taking a small step in the right direction. However, it can be tedious at times, especially for younger members of the family. Here are a few ways you can make recycling fun for the whole family, reducing the carbon footprint of your household.

Gamify the recycling process

Sometimes, children need a bit of incentive to get involved with an idea. Gamifying the recycling process allows children to get excited about recycling and embrace it as an everyday activity. For example, you can introduce weekly competitions to see who can recycle the most plastic. At the end of the week, the winner gets treated to ice cream. 

Be a role model

Make recycling the norm by setting a good example. Take care to separate materials and talk your children through the process, teaching them about the various recycling symbols and how to divide glasses from metals and plastics.

Introduce craft projects

While some recycling products will be melted down and made into a new product, others can be reused for craft activities in the home. As we approach the holiday season, you can encourage your children to use old milk cartons and metal tins to create bird feeders and plant holders.

Educate your family

When a child understands the purpose of their actions, they are more likely to become invested in the project. Take the time to teach your family the value of recycling and how their small part can make a big difference. They may even be encouraged to share their findings with their friends and spread the eco-love!

You can also encourage your children to research different organisations where they can contribute items and get involved in take-back programmes. 
Are you struggling to clear space in your home to make space for recycling? With self storage, you can reduce wasted space in your home and safekeep valuable items instead of throwing them away.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
