The gifting season is upon us, leading to gift boxes for the garage, stuffed closets and shelves needing sorting, and old items these new gifts displace … but stuff is hard to recycle AND the Transylvania Landfill is filling up. greenzonenc.com can help! Primarily a textile recycler (used as final destination by St. Phil’s Shoppe), it currently has a list of resources for those hard-to items: greenzonenc.com/latest-news/blog/. Here’s some of the suggestions:
Battaries & Old Electronics: Try Walmart, AutoZone. Other options listed.
Medical Equipment: NC HELP (Health Equipment Loan Program)
Diapers-new single use: Diapers Bank NC
Used mattresses are up to 80% recyclable! 1-800-Got-Junk
Other items include foam and stryafoam!
PLEASE KEEP THIS REFERENCE! THE LOCAL LANDFILL IS OVERFLOWING AND THE EARTH NEEDS THIS HELP! THANKS!
