4 Overlooked Recyclables Hiding in Your Home

Recyclables: We’re used to plastic bottles and metal cans. They’re usually marked by a triangle with a certain number in it. Well, those aren’t the only recyclable items around your house.
4 Overlooked Recyclables in your Home
• Tupperware: Like losing a sock in the dryer, Tupperware and their lids often become unmatched. Sometimes they melt in the dishwasher, but sometimes it just feels like they vanished. Take a moment to drop mismatched steps into the recycling. They’ll be even more useful in their next life.
• Spare Electronics: Did you buy the newest iPhone only to discover that your old cords are obsolete? Or maybe you took the next technological step and started to charge wirelessly. Instead of having those old cables cluttering up your house, why not recycle them? Best Buy has a great recycling program and locations across Minnesota.
• Kids’ Toys: Despite what people may say, kids haven’t thrown all their toys out in favor of tablets or other electronics. In fact, the toy industry is booming. That being said, your kids will inevitably outgrow their toys. When they do so, Toys for Tots accepts toys during the holiday season, or year-round when in memory of an individual.
• Dog Toys: Pets and children have one surprising thing in common: You never know what their favorite toy will be. If there is a Nyla bone, Kong, or other toy that your pet isn’t interested in, donate it to your local Humane Society. To minimize your environmental footprint, you can also buy pets made from recycled materials.
All these items are easy to manage, so you could recycle them on your own. For larger problems, give us a call. We minimize landfill use and know exactly how to recycle difficult items.

Give Back Gus: The Reindeer
If you’re looking for a present that will teach your kids about giving back to their community, look no further than Give Back Gus: The Reindeer. This children’s story, co-written by Kathryn Maish, Kelcey Carlson, Karyl Traeger, and David Lawson, stars a young reindeer named Gus. Why isn’t Gus included in any famous songs about Santa’s reindeer? Gus doesn’t pull the sleigh; his job is far more important.
Instead of having a typical reindeer job, Gus visits children when it’s time for them say goodbye to their old toys. Because he works alongside Santa, Gus knows how difficult it can be for kids to let go of their old playthings. He shows them the importance of donating or recycling their used toys. With this story, you can teach your kids about donations and help them put aside the toys that they don’t play with much anymore.
On Saturday, December 17th, you can even meet one of the authors! Junk360 is partnering with Kelcey Carlson for a Toy Recycling event to practice what Gus preaches. Stop by the park near Degler Circle between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. Bring a bag with new or gently used toys or games for donations. If you have broken toys, bring those too and we’ll make sure they’re responsibly recycled.
Give Back Gus: The Reindeer is available on Amazon in paperback. If you’d prefer hardcover (and the adorable stuffed toy Gus that comes with it), please reach out to Kelcey Carlson. We’re so happy to be a part of her mission and to help her promote the book. It’s an amazing way to get into the holiday season.

Have you ever said, “Oh, that’s not broken; I’ll fix it!” only to find your closet full of broken items? While YouTube tutorials are a great resource, fixing things on your own can be difficult.
