Garbage and Recycling: One man's garbage...

"One man's trash is another man's treasure." We all have heard this expression, but what does it mean? 


The difference between someone who wastes and someone who doesn't is one thought. It is the first thought that comes to mind when you have something you no longer want/need. This could be a candy wrapper or a car.  There are two thoughts that could come to mind.
  • Where can I throw this away?
  • Can this be recycled or used by someone?
  That first thought makes all the difference.

If you determine it is not feasible to recycle or reuse the object (even sell it), that is OK. Throw it away. At least you thought about it.

It really is that simple.
