Can I recycle that?
Ever wondered what to do with all the extraneous stuff that seems to collect around the house? How Can I Recycle This? offers suggestions for a myriad of materials. You can also suggest an item to be added - there are lots of great ideas in the comments for many of the items on the site (often many more ideas than are in the original post), making this a really useful and fun site. Their sister site, Can I Compost This? has tips for what items will work in your compost pile (the set up of this site is a little unusual - you need to click on the categories on the left side of the page to get to all the good info). I just learned that I can shred both newspaper and cardboard to go in my compost bin (just not anything shiny or glossy - those inks can apparently be toxic).
