1-800-Recycling.com, an interactive website dedicated to enhancing and democratizing the consumer recycling experience while making practical suggestions about green living, continues to provide consumers with new regional recycling profiles, expanding on its series of blog articles about the unique recycling options and programs in various metropolitan areas throughout the US and Canada.
The articles, titled “Local Focus: Changing the World One Region at a Time” outline what materials are recycled by each city and how each system works. Recent profiles have focused on Bellingham, WA; Fargo, ND; Halifax NS; Jersey City, NJ; San Diego, CA; and Wichita, KS. Each of those regions’ unique recycling programs for its residents can be found at http://1800recycling.com/blog/.
Other cities profiled earlier this year for the series include Chicago, Indianapolis, Nashville, New Orleans, San Antonio and Vancouver – with more to follow, including profiles of the recycling programs available in Los Angeles, Orlando, Charleston, Tucson and Dallas coming soon.
The articles, all archived at 1-800-Recycling’s blog, provide helpful links to more information for local residents and interesting descriptions of how each city does its recycling.
“At 1-800-Recycling.com, our goal is to help people achieve their recycling goals and live more sustainable lifestyles,” said John S. Shegerian, Chairman and CEO of Electronic Recyclers International (ERI), the nation’s leading recycler of electronics and e-waste, and parent company of 1-800-Recycling.com. “We know it can be confusing when recycling laws and municipal practices vary from city to city, so that’s why we continue to work to shed light on how recycling programs are run and what, exactly, is available in various cities, states and provinces around the US and Canada.”
1-800-Recycling.com also features an archive of original news articles about green practices for businesses or individuals, recycling, tips, educational information and interviews.
