Laundromats are now the best way to recycle old household waste.
The company says it is adding 1 million tonnes of recyclable materials to its stock in the next 12 months.
But as it prepares to sell its home improvement business, Home Depot, it says it will focus on cleaning the home, as opposed to turning it into a recycling bin.
“The home is the most important part of our business,” CEO Jim Ward said in a video announcing the plan.
“I want to make sure that we have the right people and resources to help us achieve this goal.”
A big problem The company will be adding new products to its inventory, including a “rubber” to hold recycled household waste, a container of polyurethane to hold a wide variety of household materials and a “smudge” to help remove odours from carpets and linens.
Home Depot says it has seen a decline in the amount of household waste coming into the home over the last five years.
The market is flooded with recyclables, but the problem is that most of them aren’t safe to throw away.
The most popular option is to burn or throw them away in a fire, where the smoke and odour can contaminate the air, the company says.
The idea of turning your house into a waste-management system is appealing to some because it’s not as expensive as building an incinerator, which takes up more space.
But it can be costly and messy.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, more than 1.4 billion tonnes of household and household-related household waste are disposed of annually in the United States, about one-fifth of the world’s total.
The waste can be either organic, chemical, biological or nuclear.
Some companies are trying to develop systems that can be recycled.
The Canadian company Terra Nova says it recycles about 1.5 million tonnes a year in Ontario, Canada.
“If you are building a new house, you can start thinking about what it will take to get the material out,” Terra Nova CEO Tom O’Brien said in an interview.
“We want to do the right thing, but you can’t do that if you are going to turn a house into an incineratorium.”
Home Depot’s plans are the latest in a trend that began more than a decade ago when the company acquired the business of a company that built recycling bins to turn waste into household materials.
The bin makers say they are not replacing traditional sorting methods like picking up litter or using the same chemicals to make the bins.
Instead, they are taking a more environmentally friendly approach to turning waste into a usable product.
The bins, which can carry about two tonnes of waste, can be placed in plastic bags and stacked to make a stackable product that can then be reused.
The product can be used for laundry, kitchen and even kitchen appliances.
Home, along with Target Corp., are the largest sellers of recycled waste in the U
