This has become so automatic for me that I am “done”. I will continue to collect my recyclables and go to the recycling bin when I need to go. 21 months ago
Entries from everyone
I’ve finally moved to a place with a recycling program. Between that and the bins at school, I recycle fairly often. 22 months ago
I took the 2 car batteries to a car battery shop around the corner. I was given $16 for the pair. Most excellent. I then took my daughter to turn in the pop and beer cans and she made $27 from them.
a pile of metal (I’m not sure where it is)
imported beer bottles
2 old propane tanks

I am an eco-nutjob. Tree-hugger, whatever. I fight for ANWR in my community and feel bad for roadkill. I shake my head in sadness when I see ‘development’ and even come close to tears when I discuss the perils in the rain forest.
So why am I not recycling?
First of all, I live in the south. Good luck finding a recycling drop-off here. Second, I live with my ultra-conservative father who thinks that because we’ve been cutting down trees since the beginning of time, we must be alright. I could spend this entry arguing that, but he is the main reason.
He’s the main reason I don’t do a lot for my environment. I need to stop that. I’m moving out in a year. I can’t be “daddy’s girl.” 2 years ago
I have another bag of glass, plastic and light cardboard to take to the recycle bin. Yesterday I shredded more newsprint to add to the compost heap. This, along with my veggie peels, eggshells and coffee grounds will help my garden next year too! 2 years ago
I am still “recycling” to the compost heap as much as I can: coffee grounds, veggie peels, egg shells, newsprint, etc. Over the weekend my son took two bags (paper shopping bags) full of plastic, glass, and cardboard items to the recycling bin at the elementary school 2 blocks from my house. I kept out a plastic coffee can and 2 peanut butter jars all without the lids. I intend to use as flower pots for my kitchen herbs. 2 years ago
I have found a recycling dumpster even closer to my house! It’s just down the street. Don’t know how I missed it except that it is in the parking lot of the elementary school. Anyway, that is great! I have a paper shopping bag full of stuff ready to go! Now to get it there!

My father-in-law helped me take the pile of cardboard to the recycling center. I didn’t realize that they keep the recycling center open all the time and I could drop things off on my way to work.
My daughter took the pop bottles and beer cans in. She now has $44 for her venturing trip.
To do still:
2 car batteries (which I found places to take, but I should see if I can get money for them)
a pile of metal
a few dozen imported beer bottles.
2 old propane tanks. 2 years ago
I would love to know how I can recycle CD’s. I’ve thought of using them in Art. 2 years ago
It’s been awhile since I posted or even recycled. I have moved again and the restrictions aren’t like the last place I lived. I don’t have to remove labels from glass and plastics for example.
There is a recycliing dumpster about a mile from my house and I took a load of plastic, glass, and cardboard on Sunday, June 19. I am also “recycling” newsprint, coffee grounds, vegetable peels, and egg shells into my compost heap. 2 years ago
