  • Take recyclable items home at the end of the day and recycle through your home recycling program.
  • Switch to items that do not require recycling; such as electronic newspapers and magazines, and aluminum or glass containers.
  • Donate. Several areas use old magazines, such as the VA and hospital waiting areas.
  • Donate the material to Columbia County Recycling or Richmond County Recycling.
  • Compost old newspapers.
  • Use old newspapers for animal box liners.
  • Use the materials for craft projects.
