Hip Tip - Recycables

recyclebin It’s about time for Spring cleaning, here are some things you can recycle that you might not have known about: Phone Books If your city takes mixed paper, phonebooks can be recycled Aluminum Foil It’s just as recyclable as aluminum cans, but it’s not accepted by all recycling programs.  Check with your local waster department before you recycle foil and make sure it’s clean first.  Besides recycling foil, you can wash it off with soap and water and reuse it for storing food or you can try crumpling up old foil and throwing it in the clothes dryer to reduce static cling. Aerosol Cans You can recycle EMPTY aerosol cans with other metals.  If it has any product in it, don’t toss it in your bin. Labels Labels aren’t a problem on bottles and cans because recycling facilities are already set up to handle them.  It’s okay to recycle slightly dirty glass, plastic, and metal containers. Metal Clothes Hangers Places like New York City, Phoenix, Houston, and Portland, Oregon accept metal clothes hangers.  In most cities there are plenty of recycling centers where you can drop them off.
