Commit To Caring About Metal

New Year’s resolution #1: Buy less. Metal comes in many forms, so it’s easy to accumulate excess hangers, holiday decorations, kitchen cutlery, and other common household products. To avoid clutter, sort though your current inventory into what can be recovered, and what can be recycled.

    Upcycling’s great...but you can only upcycle so much in one household. Look for a metal recycling facility in your area, where you can take items that are not accepted by your hauler. You can earn a little bit of money per pound. If you don’t want to drive it yourself, you can post on freecycle that you have free scrap metal and usually find someone with a pickup truck who’s interested to come get the scrap metal and take it off your hands for free, so they can earn a little money at a metal recycling facility.

    I think you could recycle medicine bottles. They fit in one of those plastic categories.

      they are usually a #5 recyclable. But I have discovered that #5 bins are hard to find. These items may need to be mailed to Gimme5, a company that processes these items.
