Reuse the recyclable.
A lot of recyclable items — those tan coffee filters, for instance — can be used more than once (sometimes more than twice) before recycling them. Just dump the coffee ground in the compost, and either put the filter back in the pot to use again, or — if you’re a neatnik, rinse it and hang it up to dry before reuse.
