Did you make a New Year's resolution this year? Recycling more can be a great resolution to make. Helping the environment is never a bad thing and teaching our children to take care of the planet is an added bonus. Even better news is some cities are making it easier to recycle.
Here in Thornton, Colo. the city has made recycling easier with their one-container recycling program. This means no sorting on your behalf just place any of the accepted items in the one recycling bin and they will do the sorting for you. That means that the excuse, that it just takes too long, no longer exists.
They have also started bi-monthly recycling pick up and they have locations around the city that you can take your recycling too. This can be handy if you live in an apartment complex that doesn't offer recycling bins.
You can find drop off bins at several places including:
- Margaret. W Carpenter Rec Center
- Thornton Municipal Service Center
- Fire Station #4 and #5
- North Star Park
You can find more on the above information at the City of Thornton's website.
Contact the city to find out when your recycling day is and too pick up a recycling bin. Start helping our planet and reducing landfill waste.
