recycling in Indiana

Recycling makes sense all the way around. Everybody thinks of cans and bottles, but we need to be thinking about E-WASTE AND FAST. We call them landfills today, but tomorrow we will call them superfund sites!See More

Profile Information

About Me:
Over the years I have become increasingly interested in how to live a simpler, more sustainable lifestyle. Along my journey I have had the pleasure of meeting owners of many individuals and businesses who are also trying to make a difference, changing habits in small and large ways, that collectively have a major impact on our region's environment.

What I also found was that many times these individuals and businesses were unaware of resources in the area who may be able to help them. I tried introducing people by supplying business cards, phone numbers or suggesting the two parties connect via social media sites like Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter. Sometimes it worked, sometimes not. I'd like to help people connect on a larger scale and give even small businesses or home-operated green businesses a place to tell their story and attract customers.

I'd also like to give eco-conscious consumers a place to share their local favorites and help uncover blatant attempts at "green washing." I don't claim to be the poster child for green living, but I am trying every day to be more intentional about my choices.

Everyone is welcome here, from the person who has just begun to recycle to the business who operates from a LEED certified building. I acknowledge that green comes in many shades and a little bit is better than none at all. Let's play nicely and create a respectful atmosphere!

As a member of Greener Indiana and a NWI resident, I thought you might be interested in the PCBA Green Homes on Parade in the first NAHB Certified Green Community in the country.

Go to www.pcbaonline.com for more information.

While at that site, check out the 2nd Living Green Expo we’re holding in conjunction with IVY TECH this fall. We’re looking for a wide range of representatives from the community for participation.

If you’d like more information or to be involved, e-mail me at jackgiven@comcast.net

Tanks a lot

Hi Renee, I just emptied a small 16.4 oz propane tank that you use with your camp stove. Can those be recycled? I’m finding very conflicting information online. Thanks!

Howdy Camper!

You may be finding conflicting information because propane tanks are made from a very recyclable material (steel), but they can be [...]

Who wants a lid, man?

Renee,

Please update me about lids. I know that water bottles can be recycled
with lids on. What about other plastics that have a lid of a
different color? Is there anything I should know about jars that
have a metal lid? I [...]

Lose the drugs

A speaker at a recent event mentioned that you might know where we could dispose of prescription drugs. I have some expired medical patches and I just want to dispose of them properly. Any suggestions for me? I live in Carmel, Indiana, so any disposal sites in northern Indianapolis or in [...]
