Is recycling the best option?
The best environment-friendly option when it comes to trash is to, well, not create it in the first place. In today’s day and age that’s not really feasible or in some cases, possible. Yet, some good initiatives start with reusable materials, like bags and more.
With the three R’s, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, most people have focused a lot on the recycling, but reducing and reusing are just as important.
Where can I donate items near me?
If the items you removed from a job are in a good shape and you determine they should go to a good home, consider local donation. There are both nationwide and local donation centers that will accept most items.
