[ARCHIVED] Green Tip of the Week No. 150

Paper, plastic, glass and cans aren't the only items that should be recycled. Reduce the environmental impacts of organic waste by composting food scraps and by leaving grass clippings and mulched leaves on lawns to decompose. Donate old clothing to homeless shelters, thrift stores, animal shelters and other community organizations. Take advantage of manufacturer take-back programs for your unwanted electronics. Drop off old cell phones in one of New Rochelle’s collection bins. Return wire hangers to the cleaners. Return used car tires to retailers or wholesalers that recycle or retread them.
