A few days ago I was taking all my plastic bags to be recycled inside my local big box mega store (of doom!) and I realized that sitting next to the tub for the bags were two other tubs. I could not tell you for the life of me how long they had been there, but alas they were for recycling plastic and aluminium! Hurray! So I decided to be a good citizen and start collecting all my empty plastic items to be recycled. It started with a plastic bag on a hook on the wall. This quickly escalated to two plastic bags hanging on the wall and I just could not get over how MANY things come in plastic containers! I can already tell that a lot of people in town are at least saving their plastic soda and juice bottles, but I wonder how many people know how many things you can actually recycle! So check your local stores for recycle bins and check your items for the little recycle sign! I noticed the same week that I noticed the bins at my mega mart that my local Target had just set up recycle bins too. And don’t forget: old electronics can be safely recycled at your local Best Buy!
