Reduce, Recycle, Reuse

Reduce, Recycle, ReuseWith the weather starting to feel like spring, it’s time for spring cleaning! Spring cleaning can involve any of the three “R”s. If you are going through your clothes closet, you may want to reduce clothes that are either too small or too big for you, so that someone else may reuse them. If you are reducing the clutter in your basement, you may find this system helpful. I set up three containers. One is for recyclables, one is for donating to The Salvation Army, and one is for garbage. The garbage container is usually the smallest container since there are few things that can’t be recycled. I am amazed at the amount of clutter that accumulates over the winter. To finish my spring cleaning, I move to the outdoors to rake leaves and collect garden debris, usually filling a dozen paper yard bags. I haul the lawn bags and recycle bins to the end of my driveway for my town to pick up. Ahhh, spring is in the air!
