Recycling Common Objects

by Tori Riggs

There are many everyday objects that can be recycled, such as paper, plastic and aluminum. However, there are also many other common objects that can be recycled that most people don't know about.

  1. Athletic shoes. If you have any brand of worn-out tennis shoes, Nike will recycle them through their Reuse-a-Shoe program. You can just drop off any tennis shoes at any Nike or Niketown store to recycle your shoes.

  2. Old technology. When you have too many old VHS tapes and cassettes, you can just give them to GreenDisk, a company that recycles those old pieces of technology. All you have to do is mail in the technology, and GreenDisk takes care of it in an eco-friendly way.
