How To Throw It Away

In Seattle there is now an easy way to find out where things should go when you want to dispose of them.  The Seattle Public Utilities allows for recycling and composting of waste products.  The goal of the utility is to reap the rewards of an eco-friendly waste management system.

Benefits of Recycling

  • Reduces the need for landfills
  • Prevents pollution caused by the manufacturing of products
  • Saves energy
  • Decreases emissions of greenhouse gases
  • Conserves natural resources such as timber, water, and minerals
  • Helps sustain the environment for future generations

Instead of just using the limited guidelines to know where to throw it you can go to their new website to find out where things should go.  When you find an item you aren't sure about just put it aside, then when you are connected, go to the website listed below. They have a categorized list of items and how to get rid of it.  Thanks Seattle!
