Recycle – Recycle – Recycle

Recyling is a great “circle” to be a part of. If you’ve ever noticed, the “logo” for recycling is in the form of a circle. It’s a great way to sustain natural resources.

In an office, a lot of the paper that crosses your desk can be recycled. Remember to destroy the confidential information (preferably with a cross cut shredded-read my previous post).

Now that I’m blogging, I find that I print off a lot of information so I can get away from the computer screen, and read it at my leisure. When I’m done reading what I printed off, and have no further need for the information, only one side of the paper is used. I have a stack of “reuseable” paper. When I decide to print off more of my research information, I just grab my stack of “reusable” paper and flip it over. When I’m done reading that, I can then put it in my recycle bin (provided there is no confidential information on it), and know I am doing something good for the environment.

A lot of things can be recycled. A short list includes, but is not limited to: tires, brush, trees, grass clippings, used motor oil, steel, brass, copper, tin, wood products, cardboard, and paper.

Composting has also become a popular way to recycle household food scraps (don’t put meat or other protein products into your composter), and the end product is great for use in your garden or as a lawn “dressing”.

There’s a lot of great articles on the internet about composting and recycling. Also, check your local yellow pages for a recycling center near you, and do your part to help protect the environment.
