Now that Fall is here, many of us start cleaning out Closets, Garages & Basements.
Did you know many of your local communities have many resources available for you to Recycle many of your household items? Many of these items we give away, but many items we have no idea on how to dispose of or recycle.
"What do I do with all these BOOKS"? Check out this website http://www.adoptalibrary.org/ This website gives you ways to Recycle books for libraries and schools here in the USA plus all over the world. Also, the Salvation Army, Goodwill, and AmVets will accept books.
"What do I do with old CELL PHONES"? Old cell phones can be recycled. Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Circuit City and Sprint stores are donation centers for cell phones. Check with your local store.
