Recyclables: We’re used to plastic bottles and metal cans. They’re usually marked by a triangle with a certain number in it. Well, those aren’t the only recyclable items around your house.
4 Overlooked Recyclables in your Home
Like losing a sock in the dryer, Tupperware and their lids often become unmatched. Sometimes they melt in the dishwasher, but sometimes it just feels like they vanished. Take a moment to drop mismatched steps into the recycling. They’ll be even more useful in their next life.
- Spare Electronics
Did you buy the newest iPhone only to discover that your old cords are obsolete? Or maybe you took the next technological step and started to charge wirelessly. Instead of having those old cables cluttering up your house, why not recycle them? Best Buy has a great recycling program and locations across Minnesota.
- Kids’ Toys
Despite what people may say, kids haven’t thrown all their toys out in favor of tablets or other electronics. In fact, the toy industry is booming. That being said, your kids will inevitably outgrow their toys. When they do so, Toys for Tots accepts toys during the holiday season, or year-round when in memory of an individual.
- Dog Toys
Pets and children have one surprising thing in common: You never know what their favorite toy will be. If there is a Nyla bone, Kong, or other toy that your pet isn’t interested in, donate it to your local Humane Society. To minimize your environmental footprint, you can also buy pets made from recycled materials.
All these items are easy to manage, so you could recycle them on your own. For larger problems, give us a call. We minimize landfill use and know exactly how to recycle difficult items.
