I try to recycle as much as I can . Me and my family recycle cans, reuse paper, and I save any glass jars I get from food like spaghetti sauce and the like . What do you recycle and how often ??

We recycle anything and everything we can. Our community has free recycling but charges for trash pick up which is a good way to encourage recycling. We recycle our mail, newspapers, magazines, cardboard/food boxes, glass jars and bottles, cans, plastic...

If you have clutter and/or items around your house you dont want to be bothered with selling or taking to the dump - then Freecycle is for you at www.freecycle.org for a Freecycle group in your area. Freecycle is international. Recycle items to avoid overfilling the garbage dumps and make space in your home. One man's trash is another man;s treasure" truely applies here. I have given away so many things that I almost trashed that someone wanted and even came and carted it away. You can put in requests, too, and from there I received a free handicapped electric lift recliner worth over $400.00 someone didnt need anymore! The only requirement is that you cant give away forbidden items like explosives and such and everything must be FREE, you cant barter, exchange or sell. Try it yourself!

We take cans to the recycling center, we oompost. We do use most jars from purchases. Belong to a freecycle group. If we don't eat all of something then our pets do. My clothing is passed down to my daughter sometimes. There are lots of opportunities if keep our eyes open.

i can fill 1 recycling bin a week and it's just from a household of two so i think that's pretty good. i recycle jars, cans, and paper. My daughter's dance class takes in all the soda cans to raise money for their outfits and stuff so we bring a lot of those there.

I recycle all my glass, tins, newspapers and cardboard as they are picked up from the house every fortnight. I don't recycle my plastics as they don't collect them.
