Lewis County Solid Waste Utility shared this post from WA DOE:
Every spring when Washington residents begin their annual cleaning rites, the same question is asked: "Where can I recycle this?" And every spring since 1976, Ecology has worked through its 1-800-RECYCLE line to answer it, search for drop-off services or for collectors who will pick up hard-to-recycle items.
The phone number still works, but today's customers have the convenience of searching our newly remodeled, online 1-800-RECYCLE database. It includes 1,578 Washington recycling services and more than 70 different types of recyclable materials, including large appliances like dishwashers, water heaters, stoves, washing machines, and dryers. https://fortress.wa.gov/ecy/warecycle/
Type in your location and material type, and our upgraded database will find nearby services that accept them. 1-800-RECYCLE will give you their address, phone number, business hours, website, and Google Maps location, along with a full list of acceptable materials.
You can find collectors who accept old electronics like computers, monitors, or tablets for free through our electronics-recycling program E-Cycle Washington.
Likewise, if you have mercury lights, you can find free recycling locations through our LightRecycle Washington program. https://ecology.wa.gov/Waste-Toxics/Reducing-recycling-waste/Mercury-lights
Health Corner: Epsom Salt As Herbicide - Just Say No!
Lewis County WSU Master Gardeners shared this post from Extension Master Gardener:
Extension Master Gardener - EPSOM SALT AS HERBICIDE - JUST SAY NO!
One of the principles of Integrated Pest Management IPM) is utilizing the least toxic chemical control for a pest that is still effective. Using something that doesn’t solve your problem doesn’t make sense!
There is a lot of bad information on social media that materials like Epsom salt, vinegar, bleach or dishwashing liquid are great herbicides/pesticides. So let’s start with Epsom salt!
We aren't sure how this myth about Epsom salt as herbicide got started. It contains magnesium sulfate. Both magnesium and sulfur are essential plant nutrients. According to the University of MN Extension, (http://bit.ly/2PoUiXH), "Theoretically, you could apply so much Epsom salts that the amount of magnesium would interfere with the weed’s uptake of other essential nutrients such as calcium or potassium. This is not wise on several levels— first, because of how long magnesium can persist in the soil and second, the cost of doing so. In other words, keep the Epsom salts in the bathtub!"
ND State Univ suggests (http://bit.ly/2IztmnL ), "For those avoiding use of chemicals to kill weeds - vinegar and salt are chemicals! Vinegar contains acetic acid, a chemical that has been investigated by USDA and academia with herbicidal properties. It has been used as an organic herbicide. Salt (sodium chloride) is a chemical that predates 2,4-D for use as a herbicide, and soap (detergent) is another name for “surfactants” that is applied with herbicides to stick spray droplets (retention) on leaf surfaces, reduce droplet surface tension (spread the droplet), and aid forming a herbicide deposit (close interface of the chemical active ingredients with the leaf surface). Most commercial herbicides formulated as a liquid also contain detergents/soaps (emulsifiers) for this purpose."
***Disclaimer: As always, check with your medical practitioner before embarking on lifestyle changes. Health Corner topics are intended to raise questions rather than answer them definitively. Things change. New knowledge arises. Ancient wisdom is revived.
And miracles take place against all odds.
