We’re excited to share that this month marks our 15th year in business and we thought, what could be a better way to celebrate than to highlight some recycling we’ve collected in our own office?! Over the past 15 years, we have witnessed many changes in recycling standards. Jump in the time machine and head back to 2002, recycling in your area may have been limited to only the collection of confidential paper. Jump to today and there seems to be endless possibilities for reuse and recycling. What do you see in our recycled ‘15’? We thought it best to start with the easy recyclables – soda cans, scrap paper, plastic bottles, and cardboard but also thought it was worth highlighting some unique recycling opportunities that you may not be taking advantage of, such as electronics, writing utensils, cellphones, handheld electronics, batteries, eyeglasses, and printer toners.

Have you looked in your trash cans recently? There may be items you never knew could be recycled or some that you may have thought, “it’s too difficult to recycle those items”. Trust us, it’s not as hard as it seems. If we found all of these items in our waste stream, imagine what we can find in yours!
