About Recycling Centers
Local Recycling Centers provide an invaluable service. They allow materials that we use regularly to be reused instead of taking up space in a landfill. This helps the environment by not producing as much waste and not requiring as much resource to produce the articles made from these materials. Different Local Recycling Centers will accept different materials, but there are all sorts of materials that can be recycled. Among them are: plastic, glass, aluminum and other metals, tires, newspaper and inserts, magazines and catalogs, telephone books, junk mail, cardboard, yard waste, oil, toner cartridges, old computers, household appliances and hazardous waste. Be sure to contact your Local Recycling Centers ahead of time to find out just what they recycle. Also, some Local Recycling Centers work in conjunction with their city to accept items brought in from residential curbside. There are usually specific requirements for preparation and removal for this. For instance, items may need to be stacked in the recycle bin a certain way and the bin might need to be full before pickup. Be sure and check with your local city’s requirements. This is a great way to conveniently dispose of items that are used every day without having to remove them yourself to a recycling center. When recycling at home, Local Recycling Centers will ask that items be separated and all lids removed and recyclable containers rinsed out and flattened if possible. When preparing newspapers, magazines, or other paper products for recycling, remove any plastic. Only use paper bags to store these articles in.

More on Recycling Centers
Some Local Recycling Centers will take hazardous waste. When they do, they will take the articles in for evaluation for recycling, treatment, and proper means of disposal. Hazardous waste articles include the following kitchen and bath items: cooking oils and grease, aerosols, general cleaners, drain cleaners, hair color and spray, hydrogen peroxide, isopropyl alcohol, mildew remover, and nail polish and remover. The following garage items are considered to be hazardous materials: asphalt/roofing tar, glue/adhesives, paint and paint thinner, varnish remover, stripper, solvents, flammable oils, gasoline, kerosene, antifreeze, car wax, motor oil, batteries, photography chemicals, fluorescent light bulbs, and pool and other chemicals. Other items include shoe polish, mothballs, herbicides, insecticides, and nearly all cleaners. Among items which might not be accepted at some Local Recycling Centers are: gun powder, ammunition, explosives, radioactive materials, and bio-infectious material. Local Recycling Centers advise that pharmaceutical items, like pills, liquids, and patches, be disposed of by dissolving them in water, mixing in kitty litter, and then putting the mix in a disposable container and placing this in the trash. Do not pour pharmaceuticals down the drain or flush them, as they can contaminate the water system. Recycling benefits everyone. It helps us to maintain a cleaner environment and planet, it allows less drain on natural resources, and it provides companies with materials which require less processing. Businesses, residential areas, and construction sites can all take advantage of Local Recycling Centers and help reduce the huge waste produced every year.
