Maryland Recycles Website – Worth the Visit

June 21, 2011

Looking for new links for RecycleMac and what should come up than a great website that focuses on recycling in Maryland – mdrecycles.org. Our links (on the right side of the blog) offer a lot of resources, including one from Montgomery County where the MacRecycleClinic operates. But this site comes from the state and offers a ton of great information.

As it says: “Whether you’re at home, at work or somewhere in between, recycled materials are present in almost everything we use. In fact, recycled material is so common, it’s easy to forget that recycling is a conscious decision, a choice we make based on a variety of factors. On mdrecycles.org, you’ll discover which materials are recyclable, find companies that will pick up recyclable material, and learn how to reduce your waste management costs while helping to create a cleaner environment for all of us.”

There’s a specific category for e-cycling that includes:

  • An introduction to electronic recycling
  • A recycling directory
  • Calendar of upcoming recycling events

Within that category is a database of all known electronic recyclers in Maryland, as well as organizations that take donations. Note this is just one of many donation databases that you have access to. MacRecycleClinic is not in there yet but we’ll work to get our name in this directory.

Digging deeper, I found a release from the US Postal Service that says they will now ship inkjet cartridges, laser cartridges and small electronics for free (the company these items are sent to pays for the shipping). The eCycling events page is actually a link to pages operated by specific Maryland counties – including Montgomery County.

This is a great resource for residents of the state and well worth the visit if you’re looking to recycle virtually anything – from books to glass to asphalt or even – computers!
