Wish-cycling: Don't do it!


I learned a new term yesterday: ‘wish-cycling’. It’s where you’re not sure if something is recyclable or not, and pop it in the recycling bin anyway, hoping it is (or that it will get removed if not). I have definitely been guilty of this. Problem is, when non-recyclables are mixed in, it can result in huge loads of perfectly good recyclables being thrown out to landfill along with it. Luckily, there’s an app for that! Check out the Brisbane Bin App, which has loads of info on what is and isn’t recyclable in Brisbane City Council yellow-top bins. ♻️ 👍
