I found a great Web site

So I posted some comments on the numbers that are on the plastic containers. In Berrien County, we only recycle the number 1 and 2. Well, I did a search and I found a great website. All I did was type in my zipcode and a list appeared on the recycling in my area. And the best part is there is a list of items that can be recycled. Just click on the item and a list will appear telling you where you can recycle that item. I didn't know that you can reuse the packing peanuts from packages, take them to the UPS stores, to be reused, how wonderful. Or those old VHS tapes; don't throw them away, find a place that will take them, like the recycling for Breast Cencer in California; they will mail you a pre-paid package to mail old cell phones, CD'S, DVD's and tapes. Well, I really wanted to tell you all about this site. It really is easier then we thought about recycling those items that you would throw away. And your household batteries can be taken to some ACE stores and some Radioshacks. This is so great tell all your friends and family. Let's put a stop to throwing away those items that can be used again. Go to earth911.com. Let me know what you find that is interesting to share.

You will have to clink on the reuse and Recycling Services to get the list. And I also find the there is a place in Sounth Bend that does recycle all Plastic containers, numbers 1-7. Superior Waste Systems. So Michelle see if IUSB can change those plastic recycling bins to all containers. And did you also know that Osco takes Plastic Bags too. I think I am done now. Hope you all enjoy finding out some good information. I really am thinking about starting a recycling pick up service. I am have just way to much fun with recycling. See ya.

Thanks for this information. I will find it useful. I've stepped up my personal efforts to recycle everything that is recyclable so this is good information to have because sometimes I'm not sure if something is recyclable or not.
