If you really want to help the effort - Start with reducing your waste to have the city haul away. Compost everything you can in your compost piles or your worm bin. Using the compost in gardens is way better than hauling miles away to get burned in the incinerator.

Talk with council about getting real recycle containers - the large ones that have lids and can take most of you material for recycling rather than the silly little open containers they give now that are too small and plastics blow away because there is no lid.
