America Recycles Day
Tomorrow is America Recycles Day and I love to recycle. We have a recycling center in Grand Marais that does a good job with the main items like aluminum, cardboard, tin and glass. Unfortunately only Type 1 and Type 2 plastic can be recycled here. I’m hoping for a change but so far it hasn’t come about. I cringe when I put other plastics into the garbage but I can’t possibly hold onto them all to bring them to Duluth to be recycled. Hopefully a change will come soon.
Did you know there’s a great resource you can use to find where to recycle things? From batteries to paint to construction materials you can search where to recycle things at earth911.com. There are events scheduled for America Recycles Day but unfortunately I didn’t find any in Minnesota. You can search for events in your area on their website.
Are you going to do anything special for America Recycles Day on November 15th? How about taking the pledge to recycle more? Every little bit helps.
