Taking your waste materials to a recycler not only keeps them out of the landfill, it actually saves energy. According to the website Recycling Revolution, recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a TV for three hours -- or the equivalent of a half a gallon of gasoline. And if Americans recycled just one-tenth of their newspapers, it would save about 25,000,000 trees a year!
Fortunately, the Minot area offers options for recycling everything from cans to cameras. Plastic, electronics, appliances, fluorescent lights, batteries, used clothing, computer cables, cell phones, ink and toner cartridges, child car seats and many other things can be recycled - things you might not have considered. It's worth checking with your local recyler to find out what they accept.
