While perusing through this Green app for my area, I came across a variety of places to unload my unwanted junk. There were recycling centers and retail stores like AT&T, Best Buy, Staples, and Home Depot. I saw grocery stores, schools, and even some RV parks listed. Each listing in this app gives you access to the address, phone number, hours of operation, list of materials accepted, and some other relevant information.
If you’re like me, you’ll want to search by the Material filter to narrow things down. This filter lists all basic categories: Automotive, Batteries, Construction, Electronics, Glass, Hazardous, Holiday, Household, Metal, Other, Paint, Paper, Plastic, and Yard. Check the ones you want and this Green app will bring back all locations that apply. Or use the Advanced search for a subcategory list of items. It’s amazing to see the number of subcategory items under each main category. Do you know that you can even recycle sawdust? I found that the preset searches worked great, but I didn’t have a lot of luck entering in my own search terms to bring back results.
