As Robinson pointed out, it is very easy to recycle. Simply acquire (or recycle existing boxes or trash cans) bins to collect cardboard, aluminum cans, plastics and glass jars, magazines and newspapers. Then, when they are full, take the containers to one of the many recycling sites in Elkhart County.
We hope that local families will start a new tradition this holiday season of reducing the environmental impact of their gift-giving. By beginning a recycling program this year, families will be creating an inter-generational gift that will have a positive impact on their own lives, and the lives of others for years to come.
