We Recycle

I care about the environment.  It is amazing to me that not everyone shares my enthusiasm. It took some work but I finally have the SPCA at a point where we recycle as much as we can.  And it is a lot! 

We receive a lot of cardboard.  Some of it is via the delivery of supplies.  But just as much is from the transport of kittens, puppies, and other small animals.

Of course there are a lot of cans from all of the cat and dog food.  Many bottles of plastic from laundry and bleach bottles.

Not too much glass.  If we do have glass it is usually from an employee's beverage.

I'm surprised by the amount of office paper we recycles.  That is the only recyclable that our county will pick up from us.  Supposedly, the recycle center picks up all recyclables from businesses in our area.  After weeks of putting out recyclables for pick up, we finally gave up and take it ourselves.

We even have containers for recycling at our fundraising event.  The funny thing is, that people will throw their bottles or cans into the trash rather than look for a recycle bucket.  If I'm at an event I usually ask if they recycle.  It's because I care about the environment and you should too.  It's the only one you have.
