Why even tackle salon waste, is it an issue as I already recycle?

Put simply, mixed recycling doesn't work. In a typical mixed recycling bin, like you might have in your salons, on average less than 10% of that is recycled!

One of the main challenges of mixed recycling is that it can result in contamination of the recyclable materials. When different types of materials are mixed together, it can be difficult to separate them effectively. For example, food waste or liquid can contaminate paper and cardboard, rendering it non-recyclable. Similarly, small or lightweight items can fall through the cracks of sorting equipment, leading to missed recovery.

The key to successful recycling is separation

The key to successful recycling is separation because it allows materials to be processed more efficiently and effectively. When recyclable materials are separated by type, they can be more easily directed to the appropriate processing facility and can be more effectively recycled into new products.

For example, paper and cardboard can be recycled into new paper products, while plastic bottles can be melted down and made into new plastic products. If these materials are mixed together, it can be more difficult to effectively recycle them.
