5 Reasons Why People Don’t Recycle


Most of us believe recycling is ethically just the right thing to do. But sadly, enough we all know a few people who still have not jumped on the recycling bandwagon. It seems as if the number one reason people don’t recycle is simply because they don’t want to put in the extra effort. They give you the same lame excuse “Recycling is inconvenient” or “It is just too hard to do”. Is that really a good enough reason?

At Baltimore Rolloff and Recycling Center, we strive to recycle everything possible and make sure it is repurposed. So, help us protect what’s important, so you can look forward to a brighter future.

1. “Recycling is inconvenient.”
This seems to be the number one reason why people don’t recycle—they don’t want to put in the extra effort. Some places have no pick-up. Some people say that they just can’t be bothered. Is that a good enough reason?

2. “I do not have enough space in my home to recycle.”
The lack of space is an issue for many. People don’t want to see garbage cans with a little storage space for recycling bins on the side; the extra trash is an eyesore. Is that a good enough reason?

3. “If they paid me, I’d recycle.”

Some countries fine people for not recycling. Some regions pay for just bottle recycling (we know that works). Some areas have no penalties or incentives for recycling. Is that a good enough reason?

4. “Recycling doesn’t make a difference. So why do it?”
Misinformation about overflowing landfills, depleted resources and climate change has convinced some people that recycling doesn’t make a difference. They believe there is no problem. Is that a good enough reason?

5. “It is just to hard to do.”
Since there are so many facets to recycling – bottle, plastic and paper, it’s hard to decipher which kinds go where. Is that a good enough reason?
