Fact: If you recycle 1 aluminum can you can save enough energy to power a television for 3 hours! Imagine what your cans, plastic bottles, cardboard boxes, glass jars and newspapers could do!
Before you throw that glass jar or toy in the trash, ask yourself..."Can this be recycled?"
Consult your local sanitation or public works department for specific recycling guidelines or visit http://earth911.org and plug in your zip code.
Different things to consider for recycling~
Paper: newspaper, phone books, magazines, junk mail and computer paper
Cardboard: cereal and shoe boxes, cardboard packaging, toilet paper/paper towel tubes
Aluminum: cans, clean aluminum foil
Glass: bottles, jars, condiment and spice containers
Plastics: soda, water bottles, milk jugs and all things labeled a 1 or 2 on the bottom
Be part of the solution, not part of the problem!
~Together we can make a difference~
