Recycling Tips from our Readers

The Verizon Device Recycling Program helps the environment by providing a safe way to dispose of unwanted electronic devices and rewards consumers for recycling and being green. Alternatively devices can be donated to HopeLine® from Verizon to help survivors of domestic violence.


A great explanation of the programs and additional resources can be found here:

More than a million pounds of e-waste have been collected through Verizon Recycling programs.


By recycling responsibly, we are making the world a better place for our families, friends and future generations to come. thanks Mary Sullivan of Brentwood for this wonderful recycling tip.

Office Depot’s Ink and Toner Recycling Program pays up to 200 points for each ink or toner cartridge (up to 10 cartridges per month) when you make a $10 qualifying purchase the same month.  This is not hard to do if you have at least one kid in school!  I believe you have to enroll in their loyalty program.  Every 1000 points earns you a $10 rewards at the store, so basically it’s up to $2.00 for every cartridge.
