Tips of the Week

Flatten all your boxes, before putting them in the recycle bin. They will be easier and cheaper to transport.
Recycle your glass. It is infinitely recyclable, so take advantage of that.
Recycle all your aluminum cans and even aluminum foil. Aluminum is highly recyclable, and a great material to reuse.
