Earth 911

Ever wondered how or where to recycle something? The chances are pretty good that Earth 911 will have an answer. This resource offers a comprehensive recycling search directory that covers the United States and Canada. Users simply enter the item they want to recycle and their postal code to be presented with a list and map of the nearest facilities accepting that item. Earth 911 also provides a thorough collection of recycling how-to articles that do an excellent job of explaining this sometimes complicated process. In addition to these foundational resources, Earth 911 is regularly updated with new articles, stories, shopping guides, podcast episodes, and quizzes about waste reduction and sustainable living to inform, assist, and engage readers. Earth 911 was created in 1991 as a recycling hotline in Arizona and by 1997 it had expanded to a nationwide website. In 2000, the same year that their coverage expanded to Canada, the US Environmental Protection Agency awarded Earth 911 the Earth Day Outstanding Environmental Achievement Award.
