In preparation for the final No Waste Challenge of limiting trash for one week to one bag I started creating a disposal checklikst to help me determine what I can divert from the landfill. Each time I'm about to toss something out, I hope to pause and consider 3 things: Can it be Reused, Repaired, Recycled or Turned into Something else?
Use washable, reusable plates, cups, utensils & napkins
Donate obsolete or unwanted items to the Salvation Army, Goodwill, Savers or other charity or non-profit organizations.
A list of items that are collected by national organizations
List of Donation Drop Off and Pick Up Services
List unwanted materials in HIMEX - Hawaii Materials Exchange, your waste material could be reused by another company.
Creative Reuse, I started an album on facebook
Can it be Recycled?
