As I am sitting here in my class for this unit, I can see a recycling bin the corner of the room for paper and labelled. Great… Makes me feel better that my University is taking part in recycling. However, what I find strange is the material in which the bin is made from. Yes, you may guess, its plastic, not very environmentally friendly! It doesn’t seemed to be used frequently and ironically the rubbish bin is placed right next to the recycling bin…and is overflowing with many recyclable products such as coke cans..
So maybe what I’ve said before doesn’t work. Placing recycling bins are not attracting anyone and it’s a habit which is hard to kill.
