Use a web search, such as EcoSquid, to decide if you want to use a local program, manufacturer or retailer program, or government-supported donation and recycling program.
Pay attention to location. Many search sites ask for a zip code to make sure you can reach the recycling site.
Drop off your items at the most convenient place. If the next electronics recycling drive hosted by your town won't happen for two months, think about using a nearby office supply retailer.
Things You Will Need
- Computer with Internet Access
- Pen and paper
- As you look at your options for recycling lead glass, consider recycling drives sponsored by non-profit organizations. Schools often can earn money by hosting drives, because the materials collected have a market value when gathered in sufficient volume.
- Avoid frustration by calling ahead. Make sure the site is open or will accept your items before you take those things on a ride around the block.
