Recycling Household Items

Living green is becoming the goal of people around the globe.  People have embraced reusing some of the more common household items because they realize that recycling in Huntington, TX isn’t quite as difficult as they thought.  There are an endless amount of creative ideas to reuse and recycle items.  Here is a quick look at some of them.

  • Empty egg cartons – sure, you can toss these into the recycling bin, but they can also be reused.  One cool thing to do is to fill each cup with cookie dough, meatballs or even individual servings of any other type of food items in order to keep them from turning into a frozen solid mass.  You can also start spring seedlings in an old egg carton before planting the seedlings outside.  You might also use them as molds for jello.
  • Mismatched socks – Mismatched and/or old socks are very easy to reuse.  You can use them as a way to keep a child’s smaller toys organized.  You can also use them as dust rags or to polish silver.  What other uses can you think of?
  • Paper towel roll tubes – Stuff your plastic bags inside one to keep them organized and out of the way.  Use it to control annoying extension cords by wrapping the cords around one.  Organize your daughter’s hair bows, clips and ties.  And of course, there is the ever famous do-to-do horn for kids.
  • Corks – olive oil and wine corks can be reused as multiple things.  You can make a floating keychain for when you are participating in water activities.  You can also save them until you have enough to make a corkboard from them.

When you begin thinking about recycling things, you might also want to take a look at your homeowner’s policy and make sure that you are covered for every eventuality.  Review your current policy or start a new one with Integra Insurance Services.
