    Please do NOT throw away your mascara wands. Instead, clean JUST THE WAND with dawn soap, place them in a ziploc bag and mail them to a Wildlife Refuge accepting donations. These little wands are able to be upcycled to clean away oil, larvae, fly eggs, mites, infections, mud and other contaminants from wildlife. Works great for medical care and wound treatment

    Pick your refuge to mail to:

    Appalachian Wild
    P.O. Box 1211
    Skyland NC 28776

    OR

    Wildlife Wands
    P.O. Box 1586
    Southwick, MA 01077.

    As I write this in Oklahoma, the temperature is cold but my compost piles and bins are still working and warm because, on some mild-temperature days, the contents have been turned, moistened like a sponge, and given green weeds and, if needed, a little nitrogen fertilizer.

    Can plastic forks, etc. be put in with recycling if the plastic wrap is removed first?

    When I learned the fact that shredded paper is not good for recycling, I wondered what to do with documents that I had to shred, like bank records...I checked the website for my city and luckily they accept it. It can be mixed with other paper but not put in a plastic bag by itself.

      I am saying that you should start by checking with your city to find out if and how you should recycle items. I also learned that the backs of labels are not accepted in nyc.
