Eftersom världen fortsätter att möta en rad komplicerade miljöproblem är återvinning ett av de verktyg som vi människor kan använda för att minska vår övergripande påverkan på ekosystemet. Vissa föremål innehåller skadliga, icke-biologiskt nedbrytbara material som behöver bearbetas och kasseras på rätt sätt - till exempel vissa elektroniska komponenter - medan andra bara är en källa till stora mängder avfall, till exempel plast.

Even if you already have a recycling bin in your home, there’s a good chance that you might not be recycling the following household items:

1. madrasser

Most people either sell their mattresses to someone else or pay the local authority to collect them. While you might think that you’re “recycling” your mattress by selling it, in reality it will probably still wind up in a landfill somewhere when the next party is done with it.

If you really want to recycle the right way, there’s probably a bed and mattress collection service in your area that will come pick up your mattress and bring it to a recycling centre for a fee. Luckily, one of the UK’s leading mattress retailers, Lyckliga sängar, har sammanställt en översikt över de återvinningskostnader för madrasser som du hittar på deras hemsida.

2. batterier

If you aren’t already collecting your used batteries for recycling, now is a good time to start. As you may know, batteries can leech harmful chemicals into the ground. While not all batteries can be recycled, it’s worth looking into this topic further if you’re an environmentally conscious consumer. Contact your local recycling centre to find out what kind of batteries you can recycle.

3. Kläder

Like mattresses, clothing is another household item that many people either give away, sell, or throw in the trash. Again, while handing your clothing down to others or selling it on the second-hand market is technically a form of short-term recycling, the clothes may still wind up in a landfill later on if they’re not properly recycled.

4. datorer

How many times have you recycled a computer in your life? Now, how many computers have you owned? The vast majority of consumers don’t bother with återvinning datorer and similar electronic devices because it’s not as simple as throwing something into a bin. On the bright side, some recycling companies will even pay you for your junk computers.

5. Mobiltelefoner

Visste du att det finns nästan nio miljarder aktiva mobiltelefonanslutningar över hela världen? Tyvärr återvinns bara en liten del av dessa telefoner. De allra flesta hamnar i facket med en knäckt skärm.

This is another household item that people will usually sell or give away when they’ve gotten their use out of it, but once again, that’s only one way to postpone the disposal of an item – it’s not truly recycling.

Gör återvinning en hobby

With so many items capable of being recycled and new recycling processes being invented on a regular basis, it can be tough to keep up with everything. Thus, you might want to spend a bit of your free time researching recycling methods so that you can put together a comprehensive plan for recycling all of your home’s recyclable items.
