Recycling Tips From The Pros


2013-3-flood-bros-shamrock-logoFlood Brothers Disposal & Recycling and the Wolves have teamed up this season to provide fun and easy recycling tips to help make Chicago a “greener” city. Here are 10 Recycling Tips from the Pros.

Tip #1

Aluminum cans. Recycling one saves enough energy to listen to a full album on your iPod.

Tip #2

Reclaim your mailbox. Remove your name from advertising lists to reduce junk mail.

Tip #3

Reduce toxicity. Purchase products labeled non-toxic, biodegradable, and all-natural to reduce hazardous waste.

Tip #4

Repair right. Many items can be repaired easily instead of tossed in the trash. Fix appliances, jewelry, and clothes.

Tip #5

Take up the tap. Invest in a good reusable water bottle. More than 25 percent of bottled water is just processed tap water, including major brands.

Tip #6

Take the trash out of lunch. Eliminating disposable packaging and single-serving items in lunches can save families $250 per year.

Tip #7

Buy in bulk. Buying in bulk is a great way to reduce packaging waste, save money, and try new foods in small quantities.

Tip #8

Donate to feel great. Many charities offer convenient at-home pickup service for household items you no longer use.

Tip #9

Use your library. Save money and reduce clutter in your home by checking out a book or DVD instead of buying your own copy.

Tip #10

Give green gifts. Buy a membership, share an experience, provide a service or give an environmental product as a birthday or holiday gift.
