Sarasota, Florida prides itself on being a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family. One of the many reasons of this can be found in just how eco-friendly the town of Sarasota has become. Residents are already well-versed in home recycling. Every home has a red bin in the blue bin. Occasionally there might be some confusion as to what should go into each recycling bin. That’s why it never hurts to review.
Red is for paper. This includes newspapers, magazines, writing paper, envelopes, cardboard, Brown paper bags, telephone books, paperback books, junk mail, flyers, and shredded paper. The blue bin is for cans, glass and plastics. This includes any color of glass bottle or jar, any type of aluminum can or foil trays, steel cans with lids, empty aerosol cans, juice boxes, milk cartons or other plastic bottles.
Just as important of which type of recyclable material goes in which bin it is equally important to remember what doesn’t go in your regular garbage. On the list provided by the municipal Department of Sarasota those items that should be excluded from your garbage include beer and soda cartons, ceramics, cereal boxes, cartons, flower pots, gift wrap, hardcover books, mirrors, prescription bottles, window glass, glass dishes, Styrofoam, plastic toys, plastic bags, pizza boxes, or pool and other chemical containers.
Then there is that list of hazardous waste materials that need to be properly disposed up. These include any aerosol cans that still have product in them, antifreeze, diesel fuel, drain cleaners, fertilizers, fire extinguishers, gasoline, household cleaners, kerosene, lawn chemicals, paint thinner and stripper, pesticides, fluorescent light bulbs, batteries, or paint.
When it’s time to put the bins out on the curb it is suggested that you keep the recycling bins and the garbage bins on the same side of your driveway while the yard waste bins are on the opposite side. This makes for a better pickup by the municipal workers.
Once you have embraced the concept of recycling it’s easy to get into the habit of separating all your garbage. What’s a bit more of a challenge is what to do with those bigger items that can’t fit into your recycling bins. These would be all the large bulky pieces of junk like unused furniture, major kitchen appliances, or e-waste. Those are the things that you either have to arrange to be taken away or end up holding onto them. Clearly, holding onto that junk doesn’t make a lot of sense. It might seem easier to stuff it something in the closet or garage but ultimately it should be carted away if for no other reason than to free yourself of all that clutter.
