The Four Ws of Recycling

Hopefully the “Why” is obvious, so let’s move onto the Who, What, When and Where. When it comes to recycling, conditions unique to your area and situation apply. Some counties are more recycling friendly than others, while many enforce strict regulations on what you can and can’t toss into the blue bins. It’s important to get to know your local recycling centers and their rules well. Do plastic lids get thrown in or thrown out? Does curbside pick-up exist in my town? If not, where’s the nearest drop-off area and what am I aloud to take? Am I doomed if I mix my brown paper bags with office paper? And what about electronics?
