What to do with What you Cannot Place in your Recycle Bin

Brevard County Waste Management will take everything that is listed at http://www.brevardcounty.us/swr/recycling.cfm; those are the items you CAN place in your recycle bin.

Would you like to know what to do with the things you CANNOT put in your recycle bin? Keep on reading!

The solid waste facilities accept multiple items. To learn which ones you can take to the facility closest to you, visit http://www.brevardcounty.us/swr/

For the things they do not accept, there are still alternatives:
  • The DRS Recycling Center takes cardboard, glass, plastic, aluminum, and household white paper outside in the back of the building; greeting cards, eye glasses, Box Tops for Education, coffee mugs, soda can tabs, cell phones, old wall calendars (with pictures), and plastic bottle caps inside at the lobby. They also have a list of other places where you can take other types of material. You can find that list at http://satellitebeachrecreation.org/RecyclingOpportunities.aspx.
  • Publix takes egg cartons, (not from meat) foam trays, plastic bags, clean ziploc bags, paper bags, plastic sleeves from dry cleaning and newspapers. And, by the way, don't forget to bring your reusable bags when doing your groceries!

So you are left with no excuses...

Recycle Brevard!
