This holiday season when you receive electronic gifts, take a look at them closely to see if they have this symbol on it. These are the items you aren't supposed to put in yout normal land fill, but most people I ask have never noticed it on items, and many don't see too conerne. If you see it on anything start up a collection bin for these items, then every spring and fall (or whenever) take it to a collection centre.
Other things to put in the bin
- compact flourescent bulbs
- batteries (put tape across the top of 9v batteries so they don't start a fire)
- anything metal (metal drop off can sometimes be profitable, but it's not usually worth the effort unless you're selling copper these days).
