An e-mail from the San Mateo County RecycleWorks reminded me how thankful I am for all the organizations that work at the city, county, state, region, or country level to provide information on where to donate unwanted items - so we can reuse, not just recycle.
Just in the San Francisco Bay Area, besides RecycleWorks, we have a number of other resources, including:
- Palo Alto's Recyclopedia (recycling and reuse)
- SF Environment (San Francisco - mostly recycling but some reuse)
- StopWaste.org from Alameda County (select Materials to be Reused from the Where do I Recycle? menu)
And a quick search shows me a whole range of useful sites, such as:
- Greener Miami
- The Delaware Reuse Guide
- The Environmental Protection Agency in New England
- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - a UK site, which has introduced me to the term scrapstore.
