Recently I’ve been looking into recycling the ‘not so normal’ and have found out some interesting things I thought I would share.
Did you know you could recycle aluminum foil? I didn’t (although now that I think about it why not?
Here are some other interesting things that some of your local recycling centers will accept:
automotive, household and rechargeable batteries
plastic flower pots
used oil and oil filters
cell phones-dontate to a battered womans shelter in your area!
fluorescent bulbs-it is illegal to throw these away
books-paperback books may be able to go in your curbside bin
Christmas lights and cords
Styrofoam/bubble wrap- take to your local UPS store
concrete and asphalt- check with your local cement companies to see if they will take it
