Earth911.com Search Offers Local Recycling & Disposal Options

I'm not on the extreme end of environmental activism, but I do feel guilty throwing useful stuff away, and I do want to dispose of hazardous materials responsibly.  So to all of you that already knew about Earth911.com, I'm late to the party.  But I'm sure I'm not alone, so I want to pass on the information.

Earth911.com offers great information on recycling, safe disposal, and environmental responsibility, but that's not its most compelling feature in my book.  It has a search by material type and location to pinpoint recycling agencies and companies in you local area!  It is very well done, and even includes some interactive map features.

Here is a list of categories that Earth911.com handles:

  • Paper
  • Metal
  • Hazardous
  • Plastic
  • Glass
  • Electronics
  • Automotive
  • Household
  • Garden
  • Construction

I found this site while looking up more information on the 1 (800) CLEANUP phone number.  It turns out that Earth911.com has taken over for the former 1800cleanup.org site.

Keep in mind that some recycling agencies only serve residents of their covered areas, but it's absolutely worth investigating to see if there are recycling options in your area.  Plus, the wealth of information and articles about responsible consumption and recycling is worth the visit.
