There’s an app for that!
Knowing what to recycle can be overwhelming, but there are great digital tools available to help. Free apps such as iRecycle, made by Earth911, use you location to find recycling centers for things you may not be able to toss into your regular bin — bicycles, aerosol cans, cooking oil. And hundreds more items.
The RecycleNation app also shows local recycling spots and provides tips, articles, and a log function that calculates the fuel and water you’ll save from everything you recycle. Turn it into a monthly competition with your friends for the ultimate eco-warrior bragging rights!
