[ARCHIVED] Green Tip of the Week # 40

Put your glass bottles into your commingled recycling bin. Doing so saves resources (1.2 tons of sand, ash, and limestone and 36 gallons of oil for every ton of glass recycled) and energy – recycling just one bottle saves enough energy to power a television for 90 minutes. Be sure to wash out your bottles before putting them curbside. Dirty bottles get rejected and can’t be recycled.
