recycling.my patient he,

try to recycle everything we can recycle
newspapers     save to use when making garden or flower beds
                       place 10 sheets of paper on ground then place
                       good organic garden soil on top for raised beds
                       10 sheets keep the grass or weeds from growing
                       then just plant plants

                        save for compost pile-chickens shred them as they
                        work in the large compost pile
                        take to recycle center
                        use them as starter for wood stove-roll several sheets
                        tie them in a knot them light them

plastic bottles    all get recycled to our little country recycle center
                        soap bottles, detergent bottles, milk cartons, prescription
                        bottles, etc
                        use metal reusable water bottle instead of buying bottled water
                        our rainwater tastes better any way

glass                 we take it to the local country recycle place

metal                all metal cans, aluminum foil are take to our local country
                        recycle place
                        larger items such as metal posts or metal fencing are taken to
                        some one who recycles old metal near where we live

computers etc   we usually donate these to school or needy groups

junk mail          most of our communication is electronic so get few non junk
                        mail items any more       shred these and either take to
                        recycle center or use in compost pile

plastic bags     try to use reusable bags for shopping    
                       if forget to take with me(common problem) ask for
                       paper bags then compost them

vacuum cleaner my wife she uses a vacuum cleaner that catches everything
                       in a plastic detachable container     on that stuff goes in the
                       compost pile

in a nearby town of about 1500 people there is an old big silo  that you can
take your recycle stuff to     have to separate the stuff yourself but find it
is worth it to do that  
my wife she usually gets stuck with doing it

in the nearby large metropolitan city you just dump everything into the dumpster
they have mechanisms to separate everything mechanically
we just do it the old way here in the country
we rarely have much trash that needs to be sent to the landfill

my patient he was promised that would blog him
he is in elementary school
he is in the group that comes out for larrys weekend here
he is partially responsible for my two roosters that were hens
take care of your breathing problem
be good to your sister she really does love you

and wilbur the spider said hello(will pull up my blog at work and show the
kids the picture of wilbur the spider)
thanks for the guitar rubber band thing
