I Didn't Know That Was Recyclable!

Below are some items that can be recycled and we have included a brief description for each item. You can access the full article and get detailed information by clicking on the link at the end of the list.

 

Paint
Mix leftover latex paint (not oil paint) together to make a new paint that can be used in the future. Clean and empty paint cans that are metal can be recycled with other steel cans.

 

"Dirty" Containers
Slightly soiled recyclable containers such as peanut butter jars or beer bottles with lime in it can be recycled without cleaning them thoroughly out (remember the water you are consuming in attempting to do so). These items are recycled in an extreme heat process, which incinerates the small organic materials.

 

Batteries
Any type of battery that contains metal is recyclable. Just follow the suggested process in the article below and you'll be good to go.

 

Crayons
Did you know that unwanted and broken crayons can be recycled into new crayons? Check out the the National Crayon Recycle Program to find out more.

 

Wine Corks
Yes, wine corks can be recycled into flooring tiles, building insulation, footwear and sports equipment - just to name a few. Find out the details in the link below.

 

Hair
As the article suggested, "Not only can human hair be composted, but it can actually be recycled into dense mats for soaking up oil."

 

Holiday Lights
Think about switching from incandescent lights into LED lights. www.holidayleds.com will recycle incandescent lights for you. Find out how they can mail you a coupon for 15% off LED light purchases through its site.

 

Trophies
Total Awards and Promotions, Inc has created a trophy recycling program to benefit charities.

 

CDs/DVDs/Cassettes
Don't be left with a bunch of plastic lying around in the garage or storage boxes. Best Buy collects CDs and DVDs for recycling at in-store kiosks (We recommend that you check your nearest Best Buy store location if they participate before you make that drive).

 

Surfboards
As the article reported, "ReSurf Recycling and Green Foam Blanks have teamed up to find new ways to reuse the toxic waste created from surfboard manufacturing."

GREEN TIP

 

What is Vampire Power? According to Earth911, "Vampire power is the power that your electrical devices use even when they are turned off or in standby mode. In fact, your household bleeds an average of $1,000 every year, as 40 percent of all your electricity use goes to feed these phantoms, according to the Department of Energy. So, unplug electronics when they're not in use. Use a power strip, and turn it off when your TVs and toys are not in use."
