He sees your one bag ... and raises you three years

Last week, I wrote about John Newson, a guy in England who recycled and reused like crazy and ended up throwing away one – and only one -- bag of trash during 2012. (And it was a regular-sized bag, too, not this.)

Astounding, admirable and unbeatable … or so I thought.

Leave it to Waste & Recycling News' readers to find someone even more efficient.

A day after the blog post, I got an email from Shawn Williamson, a partner with Baleen Group in Canada.

GOOD RECYCLING HABITS

Recycling can be beneficial to your finances and it can help save the planet at the same time. Many people believe that recycling is not cost effective, but the truth is that you can recycle daily and save money at the same time. This type of recycling is more than taking in scrap metals and receiving monetary value in return. The recycling you can do everyday in your home is simple little changes to your lifestyle. Something that everyone can do and it creates an impact on the environment.
