This month I want to focus on recycling! This month's newsletter talked about what can go in your curbside recycling, but what do you do with everything else? The paint, oil, bed frames, dry cleaning plastic bags, plastic grocery bags, etc. Below are some great resources to help you recycle those odds and ends. E-mail me, comment on here or on Facebook about your recycling questions or needs. Or share your great ideas of how, when and where you recycle!
- www.earth911.org- You can search for what recycling sites are available in your area and what they accept.
- www.metro.org- (this is for the Portlanders sorry) Metro services the greater Portland area. They set up drop off sites in different locations, where they will literally come and take the old paint and oil (or whatever you're recycling) out of your car and recycle it for you, for FREE! They also have resources listed on their website for specific places to recycle, and ways to reduce your waste.
- Most cities will list on their websites places where you can recycle certain items (and most of the time they are free.) For example: www.Portlandonline.com will tell me what curbside services recycle, where I can recycle my paints and oil, etc.
