Dispose or not

I like going to Ikea because they provide recycling bins for us to "dispose" of our unwanted items.

Items such as paper, batteries, light bulbs, light tubes ...

... plastic bottles, plastic bags and aluminium cans. Where do you throw your used batteries and light bulbs?

    1. Care for environment is a good deed, thumbs up!

      We have recycling bins in our neighbourhood but I think all mis-used by the residents by treating them like normal bins

  2. Wow! You woke me up about their many recycle bins that could serve my needs. I am into serious recycling too after seeing how the Americans, Japanese and Taiwanese live. Next time I will bring other items there to dispose.

    I live very close to IKEA @ Damansara and love to eat their ice cream & hot curry puffs besides walking around to see their displays without buying much. Kinda window shopping for ideas. I think I have 20 bars of IKEA chocolates in my fridge which were given by my Swedish BIL who brought them from Stockholm. This post reminded me to do so many things & TQ! LOL

  3. I think many places also have gua? My family, as far as I know, they take these stuff straight to one of those recycling centers at Taman Yulek...

  6. There was a time when there were two recycling bins placed in Damasara Uptown to collect used batteries and paper/plastic. That's where I used to throw my used batteries. Unfortunately, some irresponsible people started using the bins like ordinary rubbish bins. Soon after, those bins were removed :(

  7. Yes, I drop mine at IKEA too. Batteries are harmful if disposed recklessly.

  10. I know there are companies/stores that buy them from you. It's important to dispose these things properly because the atmosphere will suffer, ergo, we will suffer if we don't.

  11. I wonder if this trash separation system is working. Whether what ends up in the respective bins can really be used for recycling.
