    It's become a bit of a hassle, I was all for it for a while but my enthusiasm has waned. Now I only recycle paper from my office - and that's 'cause someone else sorts it out for me.

    Do you recycle household waste, if not would you do it if there was an incentive - such as a tax credit or a percentage off your rates bill.

    at home i do, because the council provide a nice recycling collection service i can shove all my cans into a bag or put my scrap paper in a pile then just take it outside with the other rubbish once a week - it's convenient, if they didn't have this service i probably wouldn't bother

    No, but I will soon.

    Or I'll get fined. Heavily.

    The guys at city hall really know how to explain environmental necessities to people...

    We get green boxes for newspapers and magazines, and blue boxes for cans, plastic bottles, white cardboard and cartons and stuff.

    They get collected once a fortnight by special bin-men.

    We also take glass bottles to the bottle bank, and shoes and clothes to the charity shops..

    Recycling rules!!!

    we have to recycle paper otherwise the council go round mincing kittens or something.

    apparently recycling is all bullshit anyway and is actually more harmful to the earth than deforestation; as it uses more power lugging stuff around and processing it, therefore contribruting to global warming/dimming (forget which is which)

    Yes, I do it.

    The reason I do it is to extend the life of our landfill. Due to new Department of Health and Environment regulations, small landfills are being phased out here and once our landfill is full, our county will have to truck our refuse many miles away to a larger landfill.

    For my county this will mean an increase in taxes and a major inconvenience for many.

    i reckon recycling pushes tax up more than using a different landfill will

    Since our wonderful local council decided that we all must recycle our paper, tins, bottles etc, they made doubly sure that we would by providing us with a small bin, and only collect once every 2 weeks. This way, If I didn't recycle I would never fit everything into the bin....clever little buggers huh

    Same here.

    My trash days are Tuesday and Friday with recycling on Friday as well.

    They take newspaper, magazines, plastic bottles and aluminum cans.
