Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Is "recycle more" part of your New Year's resolution? Maybe not. But if you've vowed to spend less money, or be less wasteful, recycling can help. The Wisconsin DNR recently posted a list of 12 ways that you can reduce waste- saving the environment and some cash, too.

Here are just a few:
  • Lessen the amount of junk mail you receive by registering with the Direct Marketing Association
  • Buy in bulk to cut down on packaging
  • Visit E-Cycle Wisconsin to find out where to recycle old electronics
  • Store food in reusable containers, rather than disposable bags
