Roses are red. Violets are blue. You should know what to throw and what to recycle too! Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day with a special someone, exchanging Galentine’s Day gifts with friends, or just indulging in sweet treats, make sure you show some love to our Blue Planet® by understanding which Valentine’s items can and cannot be recycled.
It’s official – the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are headed to the big game on Sunday. Since most of us will be watching from home this year, it is more important than ever to be mindful of the waste generated by game-day snacking. Beer cans, plastic bottles, and some takeout containers can be recycled if you toss them correctly.
We typically see an influx in e-waste at our facilities in early January. This increase is a result of holiday wishes granted, including exciting new phones, computers, and tablets. After the gifting season subsides, most are unsure of what to do with their old electronics.
After a challenging holiday season, a new year is ushering in a welcomed fresh slate. The new year is an opportunity to set clear intentions, fresh habitats, and meaningful goals. Everyone’s goals will look different. Some will focus on healthier living and exercise, and some will endeavor to read more books. And others might have more homebound goals – like being better recyclers in 2021.
On November 19, Pete Keller, vice president of recycling and sustainability for Republic Services, participated in the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) and the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Inc. (ISRI) MRF Summit.
