How To Recycle Anything – Part 2

Welcome again! Follow below to know about more items you can recycle.

If you missed the Part-1 of this article, have a look here.

On a side note, if you’re all about going green, but don’t have the time to deal with recycling, you can contact a junk removal NYC service to do it for you.

Let’s resume from where we left off!

  1. Crocs

Send your used crocs to address: Crocs Recycling West, 3375 Enterprise Avenue, Bloomington CA 92316. The manufacturer takes your used crocs and recycles them into new shoes, donating them to underprivileged families.

  1. Glasses

It is important to know that plastic frames cannot be recycled but metallic frames do. To recycle the metallic frames, drop them in scrap metal bin.

A more humane approach is to donate your glasses to people who need them but cannot afford them. Visit the website neweyesfortheneedy.com

For older pairs, send them to Target Optical or LensCrafters.

  1. Paper

It is best if you recycle your paper by means of your local town hall. The taken paper is deposited inside a large recycling container and washed with soap to remove ink, stapler pins, and glue. Water is added to create a slurry and then the paper is transformed into cardboard, office paper, and newsprints.

It is recommended to keep a separate bin for paper.

  1. Kitchen Appliances

You are talking about cables, rubber, and steel. If they are broken, you can dispose of them off. If they are still intact, donate them to other people.

Whenever you are donating, make sure to insert all the attachments, cords and manual within the large box.

  1. Batteries

It is recommended to recycle batteries as recycling helps keep dangerous metals out of landfills. Stores like RadioShack and Office Depot accept reusable batteries.

It is encouraged to donate car batteries as they cannot go into the landfill because of harmful lead. If this lead is put into the ground, it can contaminate a water source.

  1. Beach Balls

They may be made of plastic but until now, they aren’t a large enough commodity to be recycled. If you think your beach ball is usable, donate them to a children hospital.

Forgetting it cleared by a service, you can contact any junk removal NYC company.

  1. Backpacks

ABA ‘American Birding Association’ accepts donated backpacks. These bags are used by the agency’s scientists who are known to track neo-tropical birds. Visit http://www.aba.org/ for donations.

  1. Old Hangers

Junk furniture removal services recommend to give away old hangers to dry cleaners and laundromats. You can also recycle them with metal. IF you want to recycle, remove any attached paper.

  1. Plastic Bags

A plastic bag has the life of around 200 lives. For best environmental results, do not use them. Use your bags to carry goods, however, sometimes using plastic bag is the only option.

To recycle them, use them around household tasks i.e. garbage can liners, carrying items to and from a store.

  1. Aerosol Sprays

Deodorants, air fresheners, and aerosol sprays fall under this category. The method of recycling is the same for them. Empty them completely and pull off their plastic caps. You can either use them in DIY home projects, donate them or sell them off.

Note: Many junk removal NYC services tell people that do not burn them as they may have some amount of liquefied propellant. This will only increase the can pressure which will make an explosion.
