Many churches, schools, and other organizations are beginning to realize that institutions or gathering places are a great opportunity to not only educate their patrons on the importance of recycling, but to help in the effort themselves.
One of the most popular ideas is church groups and schools providing receptacles for collecting batteries that are difficult for a single household to recycling, but easy for a large organization to accumulate enough and to send to the proper place. A sample company that help organizations recycle is http://www.rbrc.org/call2recycle/ .
And, of course, many groups realize that collecting printer cartridges are a money maker. Got some ideas of your own?
