Recycling

I had no idea how many different kinds of stuff could be recycled until I found this web site that finds recycling centers in your neighborhood. It’s particularly useful during this period of spring cleaning that usually happens around now because, well, it’s spring.

Below is a list of all the crap that you can submit to a place to be reused or recycled. The 3 biggest surprises to me: Refilling printer cartridges, eyeglasses, and gypsum dry wall.
