How to Recycle
We'll walk you through the step-by-step process of sorting your trash for effective recycling.
The 5 colors to remember
Green - Organic Waste (for composting)
Yellow - Recycling (to be remade into other things)
Orange - Hazardous Waste (to be disposed of in a safe manner)
Red - Infected Waste (to be disposed of in a safe manner)
Blue - Trash for Landfill (we want to reduce this as much as possible)
Print helpful labels for your garbage bins.
What goes in each bin?
1) Green: Organic waste for composting
2) Yellow: Recycling
After separating the salable recycling, you will be left with low value plastics which the Salengs will not buy. These can be upcycled as follows:

- Low Volume Sorting -
For sorting bins, try these handy IKEA storage boxes:
Great for paper products, UHT, hazardous waste, bottle caps and more!
Orange: Hazardous Waste
Red: Contaminated waste
(mainly seen at Hospitals)
Blue: Trash for landfill
- We want this to be as little as possible! -
Since Covid-19 there is a huge number of contaminated masks which need to be disposed of properly.
Please put in clear plastic bags before dropping into the blue bin.
