Stewardship of the Earth
I'm going to put on my Birkenstocks, eat a little Tofu, and tell you all a little bit about recycling in Dallas, because helping keep the Earth as pristine as when God created it is one of my passions.
Green Living, an earth-friendly store in the Lakewood community of Dallas, is having a special day of recycling. Here's the info on that:
- Recycle Electronics Day - FREE
- PC Systems
- VCR/DVD Players
- Game Stations
- Wires / Cables
- Networking Equipment
- Phones (land & cellular)
Noon - 5:00 PM
Bring us your old and retired electronics on April 1st and we will recycle them at no charge to you.
We will accept the following:
We also accept televisions; however, the recycler takes a $20 fee for each.
The proper way to discard electronics is through a professional recycler. Electronic waste is one of the fastest growing segments of our waste stream and it does not belong in landfills. If simply dumped, heavy metals contained within such as lead, cadmium, and mercury can quickly become environmental hazards if they migrate into soils and groundwater. These metals, plastic, and glass are important resources that can be reused, so please take advantage of the Green Living Recycle Electronics Day. Everyone is welcome, so come pile your junk on us.
Also, don't forget to donate any old clothes you may have to your local St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store. Almsgiving is one of the three focuses of Lent (along with fasting and penance). I am going to go through my closet this weekend and see what clothes I can give to charity.
