Did you know you can recycle almost everything?

Here we have top 7 things you can recycle:

 

1. BOOKS

Books can be donated to charities, libraries or schools. Also can be recycled at your local recycling center or in curbside recycling program.

2. COMPUTERS

If you don’t need your old computer that still works you can always sell it or donate  to a local library, school or charity. If your computer is broken, they may be disassembled for parts still having high value.  

3. CLOTHES

You don’t know what to do with your old clothes that you don’t like anymore? Consider selling them or giving to people that need it. There are many charitable organizations that will accept them. 

4. CELL PHONES

You can always sell it or give it to your friend or family member. If your phone is too old or broken, you may be interested in recycling it instead. Cell phones can be recycled for their parts which are re-used in new cell phones. 

5. GLASS

Glass waste needs to be purified and cleaned from the contaminations. Recycling glass is generally about 33% more efficient than producing it from scratch.
