Keeping recyclable products out of our waste stream is becoming increasingly important, and impressing the importance of separating waste products from recyclables on your children is the best way to ensure that a greater percentage of recyclables end up where they should. Some great ways of educating children on the importance of recycling and environmental preservation include:
Recycle at Home
One of the most effective methods of encouraging your children to adopt behaviors you wish to impress upon them is by way of example. Set up an at-home recycling station, and get serious about using it. To capture your children’s interest, ask for their help in coloring signs and crafting the decorations that adorn the dumpster and recycling bins.
Make Note of Goods Made from Recycled Products
When you are out at the store and you see something made from recycled paper or another recycled product, point it out to your children. Seeing that fully functional and even aesthetically pleasing products can be made from recycled goods may underscore the importance of recycling.
Teach your children how to tell when a product is recyclable by looking at its label. Also explain that recycling plastic bottles and containers saves energy that can power our televisions, refrigerators, and light fixtures.
Visit a Recycling Center
Most children are fascinated by visits to factories and plants. Likewise, they can be enamored by a visit to a recycling facility. Here, they will see how the products they recycle are separated, melted down, and reprocessed. They may also learn interesting facts about recycling that they have not heard from your or their teachers.
By educating your children on the importance of recycling, you can do your part in protecting the environment.

Trying to choose the right rental dumpster for your residential or commercial needs? At RentDumpsters.com, you’ll have the choice between roll-off dumpsters and front-load dumpsters. While both are super durable and high-capacity, there are a few differences to consider.
Roll-off dumpsters are designed for single-use or short-term projects that require high capacity recycling or waste removal. These are perfect for remodeling or construction projects, as well as landscaping and yard waste removal. Front-load dumpsters, on the other hand, are a little bit smaller and are ideal for regular waste or recycling removal. These are more appropriate in regular residential or commercial applications, such as in an apartment complex or behind your business.

Wherever you find a demolition or renovation project in New Jersey, you’re likely to find a rental dumpster nearby. However, many of the building materials that make it into a rental dumpster can actually be diverted from landfills and into new, interesting building applications. Recycling old building materials for new construction is a great way to lower costs, protect the environment, and repurpose perfectly useable materials.
Repurposed and Revitalized
You can usually tell that a renovation is happening in your NJ neighborhood by spotting a huge rental dumpster brimming with old building materials. Everything from cabinets and sinks to appliances make their way to the dump, but many people would actually love to reuse these materials for their own rebuilding projects. In some cases, these materials can be used as is. In other cases, a little creativity is required to use these old materials in new ways.
“Green building” enthusiasts look for salvageable building materials that can be reapplied in new or interesting ways. For example, wood pallets are often tossed in dumpsters after a large shipment of shingles, lumber, or other materials are delivered. However, pallets are a favored material among do-it-yourselfers who use them to build garden boxes, furniture, shelving, and more. Scrap metal can be reused as metal paneling around the home’s exterior. With enough of it, you may be able to build an eco-friendly and energy-efficient roof. Recycled materials like old boards, rubber, and bamboo can be turned into flooring for any home.
Preserving Building Materials
If you want to preserve building materials for recycling, then normal demolition services may not be appropriate. Instead, consider deconstruction services where materials are disassembled carefully to preserve their shape and structure. This makes it easy to reuse them in the future in new applications.
To separate recycled materials from waste, make sure you have the right dumpsters for your deconstruction or renovation job. RentDumpsters.com can help you get the right containers for your residential, commercial, or construction waste removal. Call (201) 258-3699 for dumpster rentals in New Jersey, and visit our website to learn more about recycling and separation services.
