My town is hosting a free-to-all "Zero Waste Day" this weekend. What a wonderful idea. Not only will it be one-stop dropping for hard to deal with recyclables - ie., electronics, appliances, junky textiles etc. but they will also have community organizations on site so that you can drop off household items, baby stuff, clothing and know that it will find a good second home.
I think this is a fantastic idea and I took it upon myself to clean up things at the office and at home in preparation for this day. Waste not, want not.
