National America Recycles day!

November 15 is America Recycles day.  So what can you recycle?

Recycling is easy.  Clean out your clutter and use this as an opportunity to get organized.  I wanted to give you time to determine what you can and need to let go of.  You can do it.

Reuse, recycle, give away or donate.

So do you have an old lamp that does not work with your decor? Donate it or recycle it.  You can paint the base change the shade and you have a recycled lamp. All over Pinterest there are amazing ideas to transform something into something else.  For example you can convert old pallets into outdoor furniture or wine bottles into everything from candleholders to bird feeders.

The entire point it to keep it out of the trash.

Is your church or shelter having a rummage sale this is a great time to give them all the stuff you don’t use, want or need.  Let your cast off’s help someone else.  You will feel better when you let that stuff go anyway.

Will you recycle something this week?

  1. I love reading your posts, the almost daily cheerleading on your part is bound to have a really visible effect on my home … by New Year’s (that’s my deadline 🙂 ). I’m doing it little by little. Old tech stuff this weekend probably fits the recycle bill…

  2. We have spent the past month selling clothes on ebay, sending others to the hospice shop and my husband regularly repairs and services old bikes that people have thrown in a skip, either to sell at the gate (to cover costs) or give to the hospice shop to sell. He is in the process of recycling pine shelves we’ve had in our garage for 10 years waiting to be reused and oak offcuts thrown out by a kitchen manufacturer to be used as battens. We reuse old coffee and jam jars as storage jars for nuts, grains, dried fruit etc or pass them on for making chutney/jams etc. We try not to throw away anything recyclable. But it is impossible without transport. We have roadside collections for paper, card, glass, certain plastic packaging and cans, but anything electrical, large, chemical or furniture items you have to drive to an out of town recycling centre or pay a hefty fee to have the council collect them.
