Blog: Organizing for Boomers

Talk about the Stuff of Life!! We've all got too much of it and here comes an opportunity to release some of that to the universe.


Since the first America Recycles Day in 1997, Americans have become better informed about the importance of recycling and buying products made from recycled materials. However, we still have a long way to go.

Each day the average American disposes 5-7 pounds of garbage, of which we are recycling about a third of it. We can all strive to do better.

Take aluminum cans, for instance. According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), recycling one ton of aluminum cans saves the energy equivalent of 36 barrels of oil or 1,655 gallons of gasoline.

Just recycling a SINGLE aluminum can saves energy to power a television for three hours. However, according to the National Recycling Coalition, every three months Americans discard enough aluminum into landfills to rebuild the entire fleet of commercial airplanes!

What does your community have planned for this great day? Check your local resources and community directories this weekend and find out.

In North County San Diego, Solana Recyclers in Encinitas will offer a free e-waste drop-off from 9 a.m. to noon at 137 N. El Camino Real. Call 760.436.7986, ext. 213.

In San Diego, Sony and Waste Management Recycle America will accept e-waste from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Miramar College, 10330 Black Mountain Road in San Diego. Call 760.599.0888, ext. 208.

People can drop off home electronics, but no large household appliances at the above locations. Find out what your community has to offer for America Recycles Day.

What better way to prepare for the holiday preparations then to clear out space for those upcoming friends and relatives and holiday decorations that arrive into our lives this time of year!!

Let me know at what your community has planned and what you plan to release into the universe for recycling.

Until next time…
