I recently received an email with the following information regarding Waste
Trading Markets in my area. I think it is a great idea to get people recycling and hope that this kind of markets will come up in many more commercial areas. What do you think?
THE “WASTE” TRADING MARKETS!
Trade scrap paper for new (office/ mimeo) paper!
Trade used ink cartridges for new!
Sell your electronic waste (junk computers) and old /broken appliances!
Sell your used lead acid batteries! Redeem the following for cash:
PET plastic bottles and other plastics, aluminum/tin cans, scrap glass.
Drop off points also provided for junk cellphones, cellphone batteries, styrofoam…
These Waste Markets aim to make recycling convenient and accessible, especially for those who frequent commercial shopping areas, and also to show
that we all CAN make recycling a habit!
Please help spread the word to family, friends and colleagues. Ask around at your local community service offcice, or better yet, start one yourself. Proceeds of this can go to the needy – another fantastic way one person’s junk can help others!
