Recycling is done by taking materials from old discarded materials and making other new products from them.  Aluminum cans and plastic water bottles are easy to recycle and you save energy and other natural resources by recycling them.  Each week you can fill up your recycle bins and set them out at the curb for pick up and to go off to be recycled into something new and useful.

There are other items you may not think about when it comes to recycling things.  So how about your computer and TV when it stops working and can no longer be repaired?  It can be recycled too.  All the plastic and circuit boards on computers and TVs are totally recyclable.  There are special collection days for all electronic things you are ready to get rid of.
