The first time I saw a plastic bin I thought it was a giant garbage can.
I’d never seen it in my life before, but it was there.
I could not understand why people were so afraid to throw paper in the bin.
But I’d come to the conclusion later that I could handle paper better than anything else.
It is an important piece of paper.
It has a sentimental value that goes beyond just the paper itself.
For me, paper is a very important piece to a place.
In my view, paper should not be thrown in the trash, but should be kept.
This view, shared by more than 30,000 Israeli citizens, is shared by many Israelis, even though Israel’s government has yet to address this issue of paper waste.
But there is a difference between this sentiment and an idea that is often expressed: Paper is the way to go.
The issue of how much paper people should discard and reuse has become an increasingly urgent concern.
According to a 2015 Pew Research Center study, a third of Israelis do not have a recycling bin in their homes.
About three-quarters of Israel’s households do not recycle at all.
And in Israel, more than 40 percent of households report that they have recycled paper.
While paper is the most common recyclable material, its recycling rate has decreased significantly in recent years, as more households are opting for alternative recycling methods, including recycling from cardboard boxes and cardboard boxes with labels.
A 2014 study by the Pew Research Centre found that only 4 percent of Israeli households recycles all of their household paper.
Despite this, it is still possible to recycle paper.
For instance, the Israeli recycling company, Mink, uses a process that uses carbon monoxide to separate recyclables from the paper, reducing the amount of paper that ends up in landfills.
And a new recycling project by the Israel Exploration Authority (IAA) aims to change the paper bin system.
The IAA plans to replace plastic bins with wood bins and to provide recycled cardboard boxes to the government.
But this initiative has yet be implemented.
Despite these challenges, Israeli citizens are not going away anytime soon.
A recent poll by the Jerusalem Post found that 55 percent of Israelis believe that the country is heading in the right direction toward recycling paper, and 40 percent said they are actively trying to reduce paper waste in Israel.
