Recycling & Reusable Goods, including motor vehicles, and where to do it
It's amazing how many everyday used goods we have lying around the house that someone else can use, either to recycle so they can help our environment, or to re-use for a personal project. Go through the comments underneath this post to find them or add more. There are even places that will recycle used motor vehicles to help promote environmental education, such as the Dodge Nature Center, http://dodgenaturecenter.org. In my 10/29/05 comment under this category, learn where you can RECYCLE YOUR APPLIANCES, ELECTRONIC PRODUCTS and BATTERIES, or places where you can give or get free reusable goods. Also, some schools collect Campbell's soup can labels to help purchase new equipment. School computer labs often need used paper if it's only printed on one side. Perhaps you need used greeting cards for personal projects. (Let natureinfo.blogspot.com know, and we readers can save and send them to you.) The University of Minnesota's Raptor Center http://www.raptor.cvm.umn.edu/ needs used ink cartridges for recycling to raise money for raptor rehab. (Go to "Make a Donation," then "Recycling for Raptors.") So does the "Cash for Critters" program at the MN Humane Society (call 651-665-9311 for more info. or e-mail questions to email@example.com), and again, the Dodge Nature Center. Also, Cartridge World of Eagan, 651-454-4453, sells refilled ink cartridges at a discount price. Don't forget you can use the water from your dehumidifier to water your plants and yard! Recycle spent rechargeable batteries (4/11/07 comment). C'mon, people, spread the word! Help each other, and our environment.
