Have you ever hesitated before throwing something in a recycling container? Is the item actually recyclable? Does it meet the criteria to be thrown in this particular container? If your follow-up response was just to throw the item in anyway and hope for the best, then what you did right there was an act of “wishcycling.”

Because we think that something should be recyclable, we err on the side of optimism when we dispose of it. The problem is that recycling contamination can cause significant problems in the waste-management process. And, on a large scale especially, such as in the office, this effect is multiplied. This course is all about why wishcycling is an avoidable banana skin, and how we can best avoid slipping up.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Explain what wishcycling means
• Describe why recycling contamination is a problem
• Encourage your colleagues and your organization to recycle properly

Why take this course?

Recycling contamination is a burning issue, sometimes quite literally. If a paper recycling container contains foreign objects like plastic bags or foil packaging, for example, that whole load might be rejected and designated for landfill or incineration instead. If organizations and individuals want to be part of the solution when it comes to recycling, they need to do it properly.
