Living Green, One Tip at a Time - (a weekly feature)

Living Green, One Tip at a Time -

# 7-  Recycle  (part 1)
 
  • Recycle Bins: Create designated holding "bins" for each type of recycled product and place in convenient locations in your home/garage
  • Recycling Fact Sheet: Create a local recycling fact sheet for yourself and interested neighbors. The local Yellow Pages, Internet Consumer Recycling Guide and Recycling Resources are great resources. Find out where you can recycle:
    • glass
    • paper products
    • plastic grocery bags (better yet - use cloth bags)
    • plastic - including 1 - 7 identification codes
    • aluminum
    • cardboard
    • tin cans
    • scrap metal
    • motor oil (one quart of oil can kill fish in thousands of gallons of water)
    • ink cartridges
    • household appliances such as refrigerators
    • computer equipment and other electronic devices
    • aseptic packaging (square boxes used for liquids)
    • styrofoam
    • tires
    • athletic shoes (contact a local sporting goods or athletic shoe store - some donate used shoes, others recycle them)
    • etc.

Good list. And keep in mind that the allowable recyclables in a community program are different everywhere. You may be able to recycle most items at your curb, and others you may have to bring back to the grocery store or a hazardous waste facility (like motor oil and light bulbs). If you really want to be diligent, you can inquire at that grocery story and find out where they are sending the things that they collect. I found out that my grocery store was collecting plastic bags, then just throwing them away. It pays to ask.
