But what happens when you aren't sure if it can be recycled? What about those fake credit cards that get mailed mercilessly? Or your broken-down Croc sandals that spent one too many weekends in the garden?
Someone has the answers...
Turn to the pros at Real Simple, who are masters of the How to Recycle Anything list.
Sure, some of the answers lead you to throw it into the trash anyway (turns out those fake credit cards can't be recycled), and some of them would have you mail your old backpack out of state when you could just drop it off at the thrift store, but many of them are supremely helpful--and the list goes from A to Z.
So, happy recycling!
