2016 Recycle Resolutions
December 2016 Green Tip: Recycling Resolutions
It’s time to start thinking about New Years’ resolutions and SFCC has a simple suggestion: RECYCLING! It’s good for you, the environment, and the community. Let’s keep re-useable goods out of the Bay Area landfills in 2016. When it comes to recycling, let’s think outside the cardboard box.
Step 1: Get a residential recycling cart and fill it up! The City offers curbside recycling, so there’s really no excuse.
Step 2: Get inspired! Do a simple web search or join Pinterest. You can find tips to transform tires, re-purpose pallets, re-finish furniture and so much more. With a little help, you can turn that junk into junque. You may even uncover a hidden talent.
Step 3: Think twice before you toss. Did you know, there are several Facebook groups created by Bay Area residents to buy, swap, sell or giveaway items they no longer need? Check it out! Your unwanted item could really help someone in our community. You may even find a few treasures yourself. It’s easy and free.
Step 4: Participate in city-wide clean up events. Earth Day is coming in April 2016. Mark your calendars and participate in a small (or large) way.
Recycling reduces pollution and waste, saves valuable resources and can result in funds for the Bay Area communities and SFCC.
