Reduce and Recycle Your Mail
Are you receiving unwanted catalogues, flyers, credit card offers, and other advertisements in your mailbox? Follow the simple tips below to reduce unwanted mail delivered to you, and to recycle mail that you receive.
Reduce Unwanted Mail:
· ‘Opt-out’ of mailing lists. Contact companies directly and let them know that you want your name removed from their list.
· When possible, choose the option to receive bills online instead of paper statements in the mail.
· Recycle your mail after reading. Envelopes with plastic windows, catalogues with staples, and mail that includes paper clips are all recyclable.
· If you are concerned about privacy, cut out your name, address, or any other personal information before tossing in the recycle bin.
Where can you recycle plastic bags?
Does your curbside take plastic bags? Most curbside recycle programs do NOT accept plastic bags due to the damage they cause to the equipment at the MRFs. Publix and other retailer take clean and dry plastic bags. Publix also takes newspaper and dry cleaning sleeves, as well as, other soft plastic wrapping.
Do you have a Graduation Gown hanging up in your closet?
Did you know that you could donate your graduation gown and it could be reused? Greener Grads is a non-profit program that collects graduation gowns and rents them at a fraction of the cost of a new graduation gown. This is better for the planet but also supports graduates that may not be able to participate in graduation due to the rising costs. For more information, please visit https://www.greenergrads.org/
