Do you have a bunch of old electronics sitting around, just waiting to be recycled? Is it difficult to find a location near your home that will accept even standard recyclables such as paper, aluminum, and plastic? Thankfully, this website will let you know exactly where you can deliver items to be recycled, based on where you live. 1-800-Recycling is an online directory that you can search for locations to drop off all sorts of recyclable items.
From their website: “1-800-Recycling.com features comprehensive recycling location database that gives the user the ability to easily assemble a recycling to-do list. The database is location based, and aims to make your recycling needs as easy as possible, whether you’re clearing out the house during spring cleaning or simply looking to recycle a few shopping bags.”
The easy-to-use website lets you search by category and zip code. After inputting what kind of item you would like to recycle and where you live, the website will offer several suggestions with directions to each of the locations, making the process a very simple operation for determining where you can most easily deliver your items. The list of categories is quite vast, too, and includes lots of not-too commonly recycled things such as packing peanuts, old paints, and expired automotive equipment.
I highly recommend 1-800-Recycling! Check it out so you can safely recycle all of those things you’ve been meaning to get rid of!
