Taking Responsibility For Recycling During COVID-19 — @OlumideClimate

Olumide Climate Idowu — Co-Founder ICCDI AFRICA

I’ve been staying at home for the past few weeks with very good reason — preventing the spread of COVID-19 and taking necessary precautions. During this time, you all probably are generating more waste, particularly food and beverage packaging along with Pet bottles, takeout containers and cardboard boxes.

As household waste increases, it’s more important than ever to be mindful of the right things to put in your recycling bin. When it comes to recycling, it’s super important to know exactly what and how to recycle. One contaminated item in your recycling bin can ruin the entire batch, sending it to the landfill instead of the recycling centre — and, just like that, all your good recycling intentions go to waste.

My responsibility was to make sure I continue doing what I preach in protecting the environment. COVID-19 Pandemic has revealed the true importance of recycling. Special thank you to Recycle Points for been my good partners in picking my pet bottles from 2017 till date.

Let’s take responsibility because of COVID-19 pandemic will continue to spread and its impacts upon human health and the economy intensifying day-by-day.
