Why not put all recycled items in one bin?

HASAN

Single stream recycling, also known as mixed use recycling, is a great concept but fails to ensure all items actually get recycled. When you do not sort your items and instead put them all in one bin they contaminate each other and items that could normally be recycled are sent to the landfill. By properly sorting and taking recycled materials directly to the recycling center you are avoiding contamination and ensuring every item is recycled, thus lowering your carbon footprint and getting us closer to a world with zero waste.
