Good Morning Britain weather presenter Laura Tobin has confessed she occasionally goes through her friends' bins in order to correctly separate their recycling.
The 40-year-old broadcaster made the admission in her new book Every Day Ways To Save Our Planet, reported via the Mirror.
She advised parents hosting parties for their kids to make sure that they don't take their eyes off the ball when it comes to disposing of waste properly.
Tobin wrote: "Make it easy for people to know where to put their food waste and anything recyclable to avoid it all going in one bin and ending up which is for rubbish, which is for food waste and which is for recycling.

"I have even been known to go through other people’s bins at parties to separate their rubbish."
Tobin's desire to ensure waste always ends up in the correct place stretches to the extreme of holding on to any plastic until she can dispose of it at home, rather than risking it ending up in landfill via a public bin.
The presenter added that her laser-focus on reycling often "annoys" her husband, given her determination to make sure every item goes to the right place.
She wrote: "Pre-COVID, I even used to take things out of the regular waste bin at the train station and put them in the recycling bin they actually provide there."
Tobin has been an outspoken voice on climate issues through her role on Good Morning Britain, which she joined when it launched as an ITV replacement for Daybreak in 2014.
Last year, she flew to Svalbard in Norway and delivered a tearful GMB report on the impact of rising global temperatures.
She said: "My little Charlotte had drawn this picture of a polar bear and she asked me to give it to the polar bear. But if Charlotte comes here when she's my age, there potentially won't be polar bears.
"We were all talking about what we can do, just understanding the reality and everyone making a different and everyone working together and not pointing fingers will help."
