    yep, i actually have very little general refuse. I have no bin services where i live so everything has to go the dump for recycling once every couple of months, leftover food generally goes on the fire in winter or down the back of the field (providing its not meat which attracts scavengers)

    We do! We have 4 big bins plus a smaller one for food waste so it only seems right to use the bins for what they're supposed to be used for!

    The bin service where I am currently is pretty terrible as well but at least we have bin service. Sounds like a hassle Good on you for recycling though!

    Naturally. Every household I've ever been a member of has recycled, as long as recycling has been a thing, I've always made sure of this! Furthermore, my dissertation was based around Behavioural Economics > green behaviour > recycling :hippie:

    Can't you get fined for not recycling now? We recycle AND compost #thathippylife

    Seriously though compost is great it reduces your waste and the amount you have to take bins out / buy bin bags so much. Just make sure to get one with a cover and don't put any cooked food in or things that could attract rats. Garden waste and fruit/veg waste only

    Sad that there are any 'no' replies! What a waste. Like 80% of all the rubbish in my house is recycling.
