Recycling occurs every other week now in the City of Atlanta. If you are having trouble fitting all of your recyclables into the small bins – here is some good news: you can purchase a 95 gallons rolling recycle cart from the City of Atlanta for $70. The advantage to buying the recycle cart from the City is that it meets the specs to fit on their mechanical lift on the trucks. The smaller version (50 gallons) at Home Depot is the same price.

I stumbled upon this site – The Green Glass Company - months ago. The company is in Wisconsin and recycles bottles into glassware. There process is environmentally friendly. I LOVE THESE!
Since finding the site I have been dreaming of owning a few of these bar ware collections. The colors of the collections are fabulous ranging from the deep blue seen on this site to a pale blue/green color. I am particularly fond of the deep green collection as well. It would be difficult for me to make a decision!
Star Provisions on Howell Mill carries the line of glasses. Of course you can order on line as well. AND their shipping materials are also recycled materials.

I am researching worm composting and I am pledging to reduce non-recyclable packaging in products I purchase.
