Rx Recycling?What are you trying to get rid of?

Have you come up against the challenge of how to recycle certain objects or materials and wondered where to turn?

The Green Team comes to your rescue!

Here are some helpful hints for a few of those sorts of items.

EMPTY PRESCRIPTION MEDICINE BOTTLES   Bottles will be reused by Malawi Project. Visit malawiproject.org/medicine-bottles-for-malawi/ for details about cleaning the bottles and where to send them.

EXPIRED MEDICINES   East Bay M.U.D. facilities will take the drugs, so the Bay doesn?t have to! Visit https://www.ebmud.com/wastewater/bay-friendly-waste-disposal/medicine-disposal/ for details.

E-WASTE (recycling electronics)   Visit the Green Citizen site: http://www.greencitizen.com/electronics-recycling-berkeley/  to see what they take for free and what they charge a small fee for recycling.

OTHER?   Ask Alameda County?s Stopwaste.org or FCCB Green Team?s Emma Fujii.
