As we are buying new gadgets and getting our homes and cars ready for the winter season, here are some ways to reduce waste. Some items take up relatively small portions of ht waste stream but should be recycled nonetheless:
  • Cell phones can be returned to your service provider to be reused or recycled
  • Single-use and rechargeable batteries are accepted by some radio electronics and office stores
  • Car parts such as batteries, used oil, and oil filters can usually be dropped off at local auto-part stores for no charge
  • Printer, fax, and inkjet cartridges can be recycled
