If you're a person who would like to recycle more than just what can go in the blue box, you've come to the right place. There are lots of things that can be recycled through other vendors--like chip bags, toys, worn-out shoes, toothpaste tubes, hygiene containers, batteries, light bulbs, plastic bags, electric devices and accessories, to name only a few.
But who has time to get it all separated and transported to the various places that will accept it? Plus, it can be costly to recycle some things on a small scale. It's cheaper to do it in bulk, but am I really going to save my toothpaste tubes and lip balm containers for a year or more? Um, no.
Enter Live & Learn's Relay Recycling. We will collect the outside-the-box items and get them to the vendors for recycling. Your toothpaste tube will have friends in the hygiene products box and will head off to a new life sooner than if you go it alone.
Becoming a Relay Member gives you the flexibility to recycle your outside-the-(blue) box items whenever it's convenient for you without having to worry about how much you're dropping off. Your membership fee goes toward the bulk recycling fees charged by the various vendors, as well as staffing the drop-off hours. It's a small price to pay to keep recyclable material out of the landfills, rivers and oceans.
