    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.

    Recycling most metals has been going on for a long time because it makes economic sense. This is not necessarily true for paper and plastic, Reducing the use of a lot of things would be economic, but not fun for many people, so they continue to buy stuff they don't need and then expect others to pay for the costs or recycling or disposal.

    New York state has a bounty on anything with fizz, and all water bottles. So most of our aluminum cans get returned for the deposit.

    This percentage is not that amazing. There are many people who count on taking metal scraps of any sort to recycling center/scrap yard to make a few bucks. I am willing to bet the percentage will fluctuate with amount of worth for scrap.
