Recycling Extravaganza

Spring time is traditionally the time to do Spring Cleaning.  As a child, I remember helping Mom wash walls.  My sister on the inside and me on the outside, we tackled the windows.  Even my first job as a car-hop at a drive-in restaurant, required me to wash windows in the spring.  Closets got cleaned, and the trash bins got filled to overflowing during Spring Cleaning.

Now I have more in the recycle than in the trash.  My community has a Spring Cleaning Recycling Extravaganza.  I can fill up my car or truck with all kinds of things I never thought were recyclable:  paint, old televisions, shoes, batteries, stained and ragged clothes… You name it and theirs a place to recycle it or repurpose it.  The Environmental Defenders and other county volunteers will even unload your unwanted items from your car.
