Recycling Tips

Recycling is something that everyone can easily do, and it really does make a big difference. Here are some simple recycling tips that you can make and stick to. 

  • Recycle all my Paper (i.e.: junk mail, boxes, magazines, envelopes, food boxes), Bottles and Cans (aluminum, glass, metal, and plastic).Recycle all my Paper (i.e.: junk mail, boxes, magazines, envelopes, food boxes), Bottles and Cans (aluminum, glass, metal, and plastic).

  • Buy products with little or no packaging and buying the largest size you can use. (This not only saves the amount of materials being thrown into trash or recycling cans, but also saves money!)

  • Buy reusable quality products such as non-disposable cameras, reusable or electric razors, reusable dishes, mugs and utensils, and have your child carry lunch in a reusable lunch box. 

  • Bring your own mug to get coffee. Paper cups waste money and landfill space. Plus, bringing your own cup to local coffee houses can save you money.

  • Buy products that are made with recycled materials. (Look for paper products that contain post-consumer content.)

  • Take only what you need (i.e.: refuse unneeded give-a-ways, bags, or flyers).

  • Save gas by using our E-tran public bus transportation or carpooling to work.

  • Compost your backyard trimmings as well as your fruit and vegetable scraps.

  • Reduce your junk mail by sending a postcard with your name(s) and address to: Mail Preference service Direct Marketing Association P.O. Box 9008 Farmingdale, NY  11735-9608
