This New Year’s Eve, make a resolution to lighten our carbon footprint. Everyone at Avery Green is encouraged to take the first step by RECYCLING. It’s the easiest way to practicegreen living in your apartment complex without a major change in your already busy daily routine.
It’s easy to recycle cardboard boxes, batteries, and aluminum cans, but have you ever wondered how to ecologically get rid of more pricy items like mattresses, computers, or rubber tires? Most of the time you can make a charitable donation to a thrift store or local organization like Red Cross. However, stores like Best Buy offer a percentage of credits or cash back for trading in old electronics, sometimes even through the mail.
Heavy and hazardous materials require a little more work on your part to dispose of safely, but it makes a world of difference to the environment. There are special locations other than landfills that rubber, aerosol, steel, and bricks can go. Contacting services like Liberty Tire, or the Waste Management facility in your area can give you directions on how to drop of or have recycled items picked up from your apartment.
