1800Recycling.com, an interactive website dedicated to enhancing and democratizing the consumer recycling experience while making practical suggestions about green living, continues to provide consumers with new regional recycling profiles, expanding on its series of blog articles about the unique recycling options and programs in various metropolitan areas throughout the U.S. and Canada. The regional “Recycling Profiles” outline what materials are recycled by each city and how each system works. Recent profiles have focused on Erie, PA; Bowling Green, KY; Champaign, IL; St. Petersburg, FL; Austin, TX; Saskatoon, SK (Canada); Cambridge, MA; Beaverton, OR; Knoxville, TN; Las Cruces, NM; and Thunder Bay, ON (Canada). Each of those regions’ unique recycling programs for its residents can be found at 1800recycling.com/category/local-focus. Other cities profiled for the series include Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Indianapolis, Nashville, New Orleans, Orlando, San Antonio and Vancouver — with more to follow, including upcoming profiles on Hilo, HI; Ft. Wayne, IN; Bangor, ME; Bethesda, MD; and Overland Park, KS, among others. The articles, all archived at 1800Recycling’s blog, provide helpful links to more information for local residents and interesting descriptions of how each city does its recycling. “Recycling laws, policies and practices can vary substantially from city to city,” said John S. Shegerian, Chairman and CEO of Electronic Recyclers International (ERI), the nation’s leading recycler of electronics and e-waste, and parent company of 1800Recycling.com. “That’s why the 1800Recycling team is dedicated, as part of our mission to simplify the process of recycling, to explaining how recycling programs are run and what, exactly, is available in the various cities, states and provinces around North America.” 1800Recycling.com also features an archive of original news articles about green practices for businesses or individuals, recycling, tips, educational information and interviews. Content is updated daily, and for those reading the articles who become inspired, 1800Recycling.com also provides its visitors everywhere in the United States with an innovative system for finding recycling locations nearest to them (every ZIP code in the country is covered) for whatever it is they wish to recycle. Consumers can also opt to call 1800Recycling via telephone for a 24/7 phone line resource or download the interactive app (1800recycling.com/mobile) available via the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. The app, the newly enhanced site and phone service each can direct users to responsible recyclers of electronics, tires, oil, paint, glass, plastic, household hazardous waste, wood, mattresses, carpet, junk – basically everything that can be recycled.
