Re: [greenyes] Recyclables List


Try Recyclers World at Recycle.net. Gotta go into each category and think
about what they¹re saying (some is reuse as opposed to recycling), but it¹s
certainly a huge listing.

Not exactly what your teacher¹s after but Wasteage has their Profiles in
Garbage for sale that might be helpful: http://research.wasteage.com/

Good places to start anyway.
