Recycle fats, oil, grease & fluorescent bulbs, shred records Nov. 14

October 30, 2015

RecycleFluorescent bulbs (including household curly-cue bulbs) contain mercury, and dropping them off for recycling is the safest way to dispose of them.

Residents can also dispose of fats, oils and grease (FOG), which can clog sewage pipes and cause back-ups possibly affecting entire neighborhoods. FOG will be recycled into bio-diesel and glycerin for soap.

To avoid identity theft, the Federal Trade Commission recommends shredding charge receipts, copies of credit applications, insurance forms, physician statements, checks and bank statements, expired charge cards and credit offers. All of the paper from the shredded documents will be recycled.
