However, if you’re not familiar with it, allow me to introduce you to an amazing app that allows us to see different areas and ways we can recycle especially difficult items. Yes, that’s right, those items that are painful to throw away, the ones that we know could have a better afterlife!
Fortunately, these resources have allowed me personally to properly find areas that recycle electronics, sunglasses, CDs, batteries, oil, and more!
Don’t forget to tag me when you go to recycle something through them, I’d love to see what you were able to recycle with our help!
Well, ShareWaste is a FREE app that allows you to compost your scraps and meet your community, almost anywhere!
It’s an incredibly simple and easy way to start composting if you don’t have a compost bin, and want to get started. Heck, it can even be done while out on the road!
Funny thing, I’ve actually used this app while going on road trips and even had a friend in Alaska that found locations. So, you know it’s good! I mean, it’s Alaska?! That probably means there are locations around you too!
