    All metal cans, glass bottles and jars, marked plastic containers and paper are recycled here but I would like to know the trade-off between flattening the plastic bottles and jugs vs. not doing so. Squashing them saves transportation volume, another energy cost, but may make them harder to recycle. Please respond in one of
    your info spots. Gradually changing over to LEDs as the incandescents burn out but be careful using them in a ceiling with one of those clip-on diffusers. The transformer's heat can soften the glue holding the glass "top" on and both will hit the floor sending pieces all over.

    We changed our thermostat to NEST. It's an investment, however in the long run you will be saving a lot from your electricity bill.
