With KAB’s national initiative America Recycles Day just around the corner, we at the NOAA Marine Debris Program want to remind everyone to how important it is to recycle. Many local municipalities support proper waste management, and through recycling, we can keep much of our waste out of the ocean. Remember to check your local options for recycling, and then commit to it!
For example, at the NOAA MDP’s home base in Montgomery County, Maryland, there’s a great database for closing the loop, called “Use It Again.” Here, one can search for local businesses and organizations that help in renting, repairing, donating or selling used items. And for quick and easy reference in what to toss in your home curbside bins, use the “Top 10 in the Bin.”
