Wednesday PSA: Top 10 Important Items to Recycle

According to the National Recycling Coalition, these are the top ten most important items to recycle: aluminum, PET plastic bottles (polyethylene terephthalate, usually used for carbonated drinks and water bottles), newspaper, corrugated cardboard, steel cans, HDPE plastic bottles (high density polyethylene, used for detergents, bleach, shampoo, milk jugs, and other purposes), glass containers, magazines, mixed paper, and computers.

9We have private trash hauling so no need to separate recyclables.

However computers never get recycled but do get re-purposed.

And I'm a key member of a project to spread publicly accessible WiFi in my political ward. Even got money to put it together!

But as a one off - was talking with a member of another group I belong to and he is the director of a social service agency. I mentioned how we could get people to donate their used iPhone and Android devices - because ALL of them have WiFi capability and could be hooked up to this MESH network I'm working on.

So it makes WiFi ubiquitous in my area, and it gets devices into the hands of people who really need them.

A Win-Win!
