    I am calling the City I lie in and find out if there is a recycling center close by. Thanks for the information on the importance of recycling.

    Do recycling centers actually generate a profit?

    My city, Hollywood, FL, has a great recycling program. They give residents a magnet with a map of the city, color-coded that shows when their pick-up days are. Example, my blue recycable bin goes out on Mondays with paper, glass AND plastics. The magnet & city website describes what's allowed (like no pizza boxes). Then on Thursdays, you can put the blue bin out with lawn cuttings, small co-mingle appliances or items (pillow/hand-mixers etc). Also on Thursdays you can put out a stove, or couch for a co-mingle pick up; but there is a cubic foot maximum, and can only e put out the night before. We have alot of alley-ways in our city which helps, and being in SouthEast Florida this works year round.

    There's a charger that CAN recharge alkaline batteries if there's still a tiny amount of juice in them. It takes a while, though, because it has to operate at such a low wattage.
