Keeping Toilets and Batteries Out of Landfills (Recycle Time)

We must strive as a society to reduce as much trash as we can out of the landfill and reuse materials. I have been asked lately if people could recycle their toilets and I’m here to tell you that yes you can and should! There are centers in the United States and other locations in the world that are specifically dedicated to recycling toilets (that’s an amazing dedication)! Most old toilets are porcelain and what they will do is grind up the porcelain from your toilet and turn it into something brand new. You will need to call your local recycle center to see if they will take toilets. If they don’t there are also centers called Habitat Restores where Habitat for Humanity will take older toilets that are still in good shape and donate or reuse them into homes that need toilets (just make sure you clean them please). As well, people have been asking me about where to recycle batteries and I’m begging you please don’t ever resort to throwing batteries straight into the trash because they cause many problems of leachate in landfills which then sometimes leaches into ground water and affects local drinking water. Most recycling centers take batteries and even some Walmarts will take your old car batteries and recycle them into new ones. Furthermore, a lot of battery companies like Energizer (the adorable pink bunny) will now take your old batteries at their drop off locations and renew them into reusable batteries. You will need to call your local recycling center to see what types of batteries they will accept. If anyone ever needs help finding a recycling center or has any questions about recycling please let me know (I practically live for this stuff) and if I don’t have the answer I will find it for you!

Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
