Mainly what I have learned from this assignment is that a lot more waste is recyclable than I originally assumed. Simply being conscience of different recyclable materials greatly helps reduce waste. The category in which I had the most waste was definitely food. The packaging and wrapping of food is almost absurd and piles up in the trash quickly. The material that I found my self throwing away the most was definitely plastic. Almost every food container is made out of plastic or cardboard. One way I can greatly reduce my waste is making sure I have a bin in my apartment designated for recycling. Although I do recycle, I never had a been specifically designated for it so whenever the cardboard boxes near my door were piled too high I stopped recycling. With a bin specifically for recycling I know I will reduce the waste I produce.
