What should you do when a material isn’t accepted by your curbside recycling or a drop-off program in your area? Don’t be quick to throw that item in your trash, because there may just be a mail-back program that accepts it, even if the material is a little unusual.

A mail-back program offers collection and recycling or disposal of products by sending them via mail. There may be fees associated with mail-in program recycling, but some programs do pay for shipping costs, so it’s best that you call or visit the website before sending in products. They may also have special packaging requirements or instructions for you to follow. Click through to see which 10 things you can recycle from home by mail.

        Hello

        Now that Cash for Clunkers has used up its funding I thought you might be interested in some information on car donation. Your readers can still donate a car right now and get a tax write off and help a charity. We also offer you a commission of $100 per car donation referral when you add a link to http://www.donatecarusa.com . All you do is add a link and we cut you a check. Call me or email for more information. It would be great to offer your readers the car donation option and for you to receive the usual $100 advertising share (instead of Google or the newspapers).
