Get Rid of Your Trash and Save the Earth
January 05, 2008
Americans produce more and more garbage every year. And even careful recyclers can feel overwhelmed by the amount of household waste that goes beyond what municipal recyclers can handle.
Co-op American has assembled a handy list of how to recycle items you might right now feel obliged to throw away. Click the link below for the entire list and to learn how you can recycle things such as:
Appliances: Goodwill or the Steel Recycling Institute can help you out with these
Compact fluorescent light bulbs: Your local IKEA store will recycle them
Eyeglasses: Your local Lion’s Club or eye care chain may collect these for redistribution to people in need
Tennis shoes: Nike’s Reuse-a-Shoe program turns old shoes into playground and athletic flooring
