There’s Only One Earth

The world is changing, the climate is changing, and we as humans need to change too. At least that’s the idea, but it can be difficult when you call a recycling center or scrap yard and they tell you about all the things they don’t take, while the list of things they do accept keeps getting smaller. As with most things in life, it all comes down to money. Metal will always be valuable. Almost any recycling center will gladly accept your metal, but they usually offer no solutions when recycling the more hazardous items in our lives. Even so, one place is trying to move in a healthier direction. That place is Earthbound Recycling in Eureka, MO. It’s one of the few places in the bi-state region, possibly the entire state of Missouri, that does its part to help people recycle the hazardous items we just don’t need sitting around the house. Old paint from that weekend project, leftover pesticides from that rather unfortunate termite infestation, or even dead batteries from your TV remote, everything has to go somewhere.

You might as well recycle it, and Earthbound Recycling can help give you that peace of mind. There are other things we accumulate over the years that must go somewhere too. Tools that you’ve had for decades, knickknacks just collecting dust in your basement, electronics that are outdated and obsolete, that half used bag of tile spacers you’re stuck with, your special bucket of screws you just know you’re going to use someday, books you haven’t read in years that deserve fresh eyes, the list goes on and on of stuff we just have sitting around, taking up space. It’s not that it’s junk or trash, you just don’t need it anymore, and that’s OK. Let go! You can’t keep everything! You can give your treasures a new lease on life at Earthbound Recycling. There isn’t much they don’t take, and they’ll do everything in their power to ensure it doesn’t end up in a landfill that your grandchildren’s grandchildren will have to deal with someday. The world isn’t getting any bigger, and we can’t bury everything. Do your part, contact Earthbound Recycling in Eureka, and find out how easy it is to keep your planet healthy.
