Photos taken over a year ago at one of my visits to our Ikea store. Whenever I go there, usually to meet up with Grace from Perth Daily Photo I take our used batteries or lamps and drop them in their containers.
There are of course other companies that take all sorts of recyclable materials and I do my best to sort my waste accordingly. In our neighbourhood we have a lady that works for a plastic recycling company and she collects all the nr. 1 and 2 plastics, so every couple of weeks I drop these off into the big collection bag in her front garden.
Recently Western Australia introduced a 10 cent refund for eligible beverage containers - water and soft drink cans and bottles, beer cans and bottles, etc, and hopefully this will also help the environment. But I still see many people throwing their bottles or cans into the bins...
