Waste Connections Memphis offers businesses dedicated containers for cardboard recycling and they also collect bundled old corrugated cardboard (OCC) in nine communities in Tennessee and four communities in Mississippi.
Accidental exposure to medications can be a problem in the United States and it’s often in homes with young children, so it’s important to dispose of expired and old medications in the home as they present an unnecessary health risk.
Today, it’s estimated that more than 90 percent of the country has access to some type of recycling program and each American keeps more than 1.5 pounds of recyclables out of the landfill each day. Those encouraging numbers are driven by environmental concerns and, as importantly, the presence of curbside recycling programs.
One of the more common residential waste items placed in the trash rather than the recycling container is the carton. Juice cartons, soup cartons and many others often wind up in the landfill when they could be sent to a paper mill and recycled into new paper products.
