Time to clean out the basement! This Sunday is National Recycling Day. What better time to clean up than right before the holidays hit?
All across the country there will be events designed to make recycling easy – especially for those “special items” that aren’t always picked up. However, the national list here has broken links to the Maryland events, so I’m summarizing those I’m aware of the four Montgomery County events – in Bethesda, Silver Spring, and Germantown.
At each County Event, you can shred up to five small boxes of old bank statements and other personal documents for recycling. Donations of clean clothing, household goods and small furniture will also be collected to benefit The Arc of Montgomery County Thrift Store, Lupus Foundation of America, Vietnam Veterans of America, and National Children’s Center, Inc.. (And yes, you can get tax receipts for your donations!)

I’d love to say I’d join you, but that Swine Flu I last blogged about? It ran through the house, and then the nasty germs turned into bronchitis and laryngitis, from which I’m still recovering. So unfortunately, I think I’ll miss National Recycling Day! But tell me how it goes!
