Best websites for recycling help

These sites will answer all your questions about recycling — what to recycle, where to take it, and even how to earn points that can be redeemed at such places as iTunes and Bed Bath & Beyond.

Earth911.com has a “Recylo-pedia” that covers product categories from wrapping paper to rechargeable batteries, explaining how to dispose of them. It also provides a database of more than 100,000 recycling locations, where used goods can be dropped.

Recyclebank.com promotes recycling by rewarding good deeds with coupons or gift cards from one of 1,500 retail partners, including iTunes and Bed Bath & Beyond. Earn points for such “Earth-friendly actions” as sending in old electronics or just for ridding your house of junk by scheduling a pickup from 1-800-GOT-JUNK.

Elmersgluecrew.com, the recycling program started by the famous glue maker, informs visitors about how to recycle old glue bottles and sticks. It also gives them a chance to win such school supplies as backpacks and binders. Last year’s efforts saved 2 million bottles and sticks from ending up in a landfill.
