Recycling is the breaking down of used items with the various components to be utilized to make raw material to make new products.
Many regions, municipalities, cities, towns and regions have a pick up program in place to collect and recycle, organics, cans, paper, cardboard, plastic, glass etc. If a program is not in place it can be worthwhile to check your area for recycling plants that will take your recyclables, in some cases they will pay a per pound amount to you. In our region, we can also bring electronics and appliances and they pay you by weight. For organic materials a compost bin is a good addition as it is a good way to recycle organic matter into usable soil to add to pots, plants and gardens.
