Frank’s Rules for Recycling Other

Check the rules for what recyclables are accepted in your local program.

Look for drop-off or mail-in opportunities to recycle batteries.

Drop-off locations are sometimes available for polystyrene foam.

Look for special events to recycle household materials such as paint, clothes and mattresses.

Items that are contaminated by food residue are not accepted in recycling, whether curbside or drop-off!

Rope, twine and wire cannot be recycled at local recycling centers — they clog machinery (“tanglers”).

What Frank is listening to

Life isn’t always about recycling. It’s about life – hanging out with your raccoon friends, napping in attic spaces, rummaging through dumpsters, engaging in nocturnal capers and, of course, obsessing about recycling. But no matter how you live your life, you need cool music to go with it.
