   Are there appliance stores in the region that will dispose of your old appliance in an environmentally friendly way, or do all old appliances go to a landfill?  We are going to buy a new energy-efficient refrigerator and have no way to store our old one until Drop-Off Day May 8.

Appliance store recycling practices

Judy Hill

We plan to buy a new energy-saving refrigerator.  What do the various appliance stores, who take your old refrigerator away, do with those old refrigerators?  We want ours not to go into a landfill but be responsibly disposed of.  Can you recommend a certain retailer?

Cat Litter?

Name: 
Sandy

What is the best way to dispose of a dirty cat box? I clean my cat box every day and use the plastic bags from the grocery store to throw it away. I bring my canvas bags to the store so I don't have to use the plastic ones. But at the same time I need them for the cat box.

I now I am reusing but there has to be a better eco-friendly way.

Any suggestions?

Hi,
My house needs to be winter-proofed and I don't want to do the work myself. Do you know of someone who does that kind of work?
Thanks.
