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.

    Some good ideas for using recycled metal containers, especially the idea of a pen holder!

    I like to use the lids of tin cans and cover with decorated paper and make Christmas ornaments. Very cute you can also put a picture on them and give them away for presents!

    Our area has a recycler who will come to your house and haul off scrap metal for free. He sells it and gives you half. Our family acted like a scavenger hunt running around finding old curtain rods, bent buckets, nails, etc. it's amazing what is in the garage. He even took a non-working lawn mower and tiller.
    Check your local phone book for a hauler.
