With Earth Day approaching, people should start thinking about ways they can help the environment. Recycling is one of those ways. Just by recycling you are saving fossil fuel, water, trees, landfill space and money. Recycling will reduce the amount of waste you send to landfills and benefits the environment in many ways. For example, with every ton of paper you recycle you save 17 trees, 79 gallons of oil, 7,000 gallons of water, 60 gallons of air pollution, 41,000 kilowatts of energy and 3 cubic yards of landfill space. It also costs at least three times more to dump trash in landfills than it costs to reuse and recycle. If you don’t know what you can and can’t recycle you can go to this Web site: www.recyclenow.com.  

If you would like to Freecycle go to [Link Removed] It’s a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It’s all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. Each local group is moderated by a local volunteer (them’s good people). Membership is free. You would be amazed to find out some of the stuff that you can Freecycle. Things that you may not have even thought about, stuff like bicycles, computers, keys and musical instruments can be Freecycled. Before you throw something away, stop and think about whether or not you can recycle it or Freecyle it!

    • I LOVE freecycle. I am originally from Holland where recycling is BIG!! My husband laughs at me sometimes when I post on freecycle, but I always find people that can use things I do not want anymore.

    • I must agree. I love freecycle! I am from Pittsburgh, PA and it is a popular thing to do here! I have given so many things away - to me I’m cleaning out my stuff (all good but just don’t use anymore) - but it is new to others! It’s nice to know you are helping each other out with no payment other than a I hope you enjoy and a smile.
