  2. Make sure it's clean and empty.Flush waste from boxes, containers, bottles and jars, or other recyclable materials that may contain food debris. For example, greasy pizza boxes are unacceptable.
  3. Stay dry. When it comes to paper and board, keeping it dry is critical to the recycling process. Please also smooth out all the boxes.
  4. I don't want cycles.Do you think you can throw everything in the trash and everything will be solved at the recycling plant? think again Recycling just these five key items is crucial: cans, boxes, glass, paper and plastic, and plastic bottles and jugs.
  5. Join a social media community.Share a post. Make a story. Interact with social media accounts in your community. You can find the Cuyahoga County accounts atFacebook,blood,Instagram,YoutubemiLinkedIn.

Dangerous and unwanted items

Dangerous and unwanted items

Home Depot's National CFL Recycling Program

Recycling compact fluorescent lamps is easy. Home Depot offers free CFL recycling at each of its 1,973 locations. Customers can return undamaged, expired light bulbs to the return desk of any Home Depot store. This is in response to customer concerns about improper disposal of the lamps, which contain small amounts of mercury.

medicine and environment

One of the most recommended methods of disposing of unwanted medication is to flush the medication down the toilet or down the drain. Your doctor or pharmacist may even ask you to do this.

But when drugs are thrown away or washed down the drain, they flow into your local septic tank or treatment plant, where they can damage the beneficial bacteria that break down the waste.

Septic tanks and municipal sewage treatment plants are not designed to remove these drugs, so they enter the treatment plant unchanged. When treated water is discharged into rivers and lakes, it can still contain these drugs.

Our local authorities are working to keep these drugs out of our sewage, rivers and lakes.

Currently, the safest way to dispose of unwanted medication is to wrap it securely and place it in the trash, out of the reach of children and animals.

However, simply throwing the medication away can be dangerous. Measures must be taken to make it difficult for people or animals to inadvertently pick up the discarded medicine.

If your pharmacy does not accept unwanted medication:

Keep the medication in its original packaging. The labels can contain the necessary information and the caps are often child resistant.

Remove any personal information from the package. Use a bullet to hide the name and insurance information.

Disable the drug. Crush or dissolve the tablets with a little water. Pick up liquid medicines with flour, table salt or another non-toxic substance. Wrap the blisters in layers of strong tape. Place the package in an opaque container. Any empty yogurt or margarine container works best.

Free service to reduce your unwanted catalogs

Every year more than eight million tons of trees are used for the production of paper catalogues. There is now a free service that will help you reduce the flow of unwanted catalogs entering your home:Opens in a new windowwww.catalogchoice.org

(Video) What do garbage trucks do with garbage?

All you need is the customer number (printed next to the name/address field on the back of the catalogue). This process is much easier than calling to request the break. The website also saves the catalogs that you have removed.
