… And Other Hard-To-Recycle Items
It’s campaign season and the political yard signs are out in force this month. Next month, after the Nov. 3 election, what to do?
SustainAbility is a local recycler that provides meaningful work for people who face employment barriers. They take common recyclables like aluminum, glass, cardboard, compost, and electronics and they also accept hard-to-recycle items, including large #2 plastic kids toys and play sets.
Another hard-to-recycle item they welcome is corrugated plastic political signs. After the election, talk to your neighbors about collecting a car full of political signs for a run to one of their two drop-off locations at 6240 W. 54th Ave. and 1270 S. Bannock St.
Before you go, check their website at sustainability-recycling.com to learn about other materials they take. There is a $2 per car entrance fee and many items are free, although additional fees are levied for some electronics.
