I do recycle aluminum and also plastic Walmart bags. I also donate all my books and clothing, when I'm done with them.

Yes, my husband and I recycle anything that's allowed.  We are constantly checking our recycling list to determine whether or not an item can be recycled.   ;)

We save soda cans for recycling. And scrap metal sometimes.

I used to recycle plastic/glass/aluminium bottles cans in a recycler back in middle school for money. Now they don't have it anymore (at least to my location) and I just put my recycle products in a recycle bin.

For several years that is how we survived by recycling for money not just aluminum cans but appliances and you name it picked up by the side of the road which supplemented my disability and enabled my two sons and I to make it.  Although at times even at that it was hard.  We had something happen that has enabled us not to have to do that now but we did it for a very long time and appreciated what we found.

I recycle as many things as I can and don't even get money for it.  I also hate when things aren't recycled at work like white paper from bad copies or when I see an aluminum can in the regular trash.  People who don't at least try and recycle when they can just don't care and/or are lazy :bad:

I recycle anything I can ... cans, bottles, newspaper, and any plastic that has a recycle symbol on it.

Yes, I do.  Recycling is required in my area.  We recycle pretty much everything which includes paper, plastic, old electronic equipment and aluminum. Have a wonderful day!

I like recycling. I don't like to waste my dollar and I try to recycly things as much as I can. I buy clothes from thrift stores rather then expensive stores. I like to recylcle anythubg from zip lock bags to bottles and cans and if clothes are too small or too big on me I use the material either for rags or use the material to sew up a dress for my niece. Recycling is a good thing and it is very much respected in my family.

I recycle. We have to in our neighborhood but even if if we didn't I still would. Makes me feel like I am doing my small part in helping.

Although I agree with recycling, I think it is getting out of hand. Here in NYC soon we will have to separate our food from regular garbage. Compost they call it now. The problem I have is that they recycle less than 5 percent of all the garbage they collect here. So I say why bother.
