100 Things About Me #2: I Take Issue With The Amount Of Stuff People Send To Lanfills

Everything that I can find used is something less going into to a landfill.

Our landfills are seriously over-filled. Enough so that we need more landfills. However, no one wants them in their communities. Can you blame them? I don’t blame them at all. They stink things up for miles around. It is gross, and It may lower property values.

When I was young, I remember going to the dump with my parents. We went there to see what we could find that we could use. The ick factor was not in my life yet, I don’t think. I also remember things being separated out so that gross stuff was not mixed with the good stuff so much.

I’m not sure if this is still legal, but it occurs to me that I never hear about anyone doing it.

Now, I find as many ways as I can to cut costs. Freecyle is a help, neighborhood cleanup up, thrift shops and yard sales. Not only am I saving money, but I like the fact that I am not buying new what I can by used  – in order to keep as much stuff as I can out of landfills.

To reuse an item is a great way to recycle.
