recycle

Apartment dwellers may think that adopting green living habits won’t make a difference, but they are wrong.  Every effort in the area of recycling has an impact on overall energy consumption.  Here are some tips for recycling in an apartment complex:

  • In your apartment, separate recyclables such as glass bottles, aluminum cans and paper from other trash (check containers for recycling symbols if you’re not sure).
       
  • Locate the recycling station in your complex and drop off your recyclables.
       
  • If your complex doesn’t have a recycling program, work with neighbors to get one stared or drop your recyclables off at a community recycling station.
       
  • Donate unwanted household items to charities that support resale.

  •  For more information, see the Green Living Guide.
