Today I want to talk about recycling. It’s something that I have always talked about with family and friends, but I have never started doing myself. I know I need to, but I do live in a small house for now. I’m starting to recycle, and I want everyone to try and start to do the same.
When I lived in California, the San Francisco Bay Area, all of the recycling was pick up at a person’s residents and they did not have to take it anywhere. They would provide the different crates or bins for each type of recyclable material, and there was even a separate large container for all lawn clippings. I have never understood why all states do not do the same. Murfreesboro does have an area to take all recyclable materials. I will be going there to post more information about the area next week.
Now I know that not all area have recycling centers or drop off areas, but there maybe one close to you. If you do not have a lot of materials that can be recycled, and that is a good thing, you can team up with friends and neighbors to collect the materials, and then take turns dropping it off.
Several years ago I was able to fill my city provided garbage container to the top every week. I mean I would have to push the lid down just so it would close. For the past two years it has become less of a hassle. I can barely fill half of the garbage container.
