Old electronics often are tossed in the trash. From bulky computer monitors to cell phones and random pieces of equipment, you probably just want these items out of the house. However, electronics cause more problems in local landfills than almost anything else. With the chemicals leaking out to the plastics sitting around for tens of thousands of years, you want to avoid placing these in the trash. Your local electronics store will offer recycling programs to help rid these objects.
Toilet Paper Rolls
These are actually some of the most obvious items to recycle, yet are also some of the most often missed. After all, toilet paper rolls, paper towel rolls and other such rolls are made out of cardboard and can easily be tossed into the recycling. So, while going through the house cleaning everything up with the paper towel, make sure to add those rolls into the recycling.
Plastic Shopping Bags
Many countries are no longer offering plastic shopping bags due to the amount of plastic used. It is best to save these plastic bags after individual shopping trips and then bring the bags back to the store. Most grocery stores have bins for returning plastic bags. Also, consider picking up a reusable shopping bag for future visits to the stores.
