The amount of plastic used by most American homes is truly staggering. By simply recycling plastic bottles, families can cut down dramatically on landfill. Plastic bottles take approximately one million years to biodegrade and are a huge cause of landfill overcrowding. Recycling also saves money because it requires families to buy fewer garbage bags and may mean paying less for garbage collection. The City of Houston offers curbside recycling pickup as well as numerous recycling facilities where citizens can drop off plastic bottles and other recyclable items.
Just like plastic, another big component of waste recycling is scrap metal recycling, an industry that’s working toward cleaning the environment and helping the planet. Tossing metal pieces into the trash and adding to the landfills is hazardous, because these things may contain toxic chemicals that can contaminate water bodies and even seep into the topsoil. If we don’t recycle metal, we’ll have to mine and dig for new metal from the earth’s surface which can consume massive amounts of fossil fuels and result in greenhouse gas emission. Almost everything that contains metal can be recycled, simply because metals last forever and can be recycled and reused multiple times. I’m all for metal recycling and visit the SIMS facility for metal management at Japhet Street Houston TX that’s near my place every once in a while – selling scrap metal does help you earn a few bucks in the process and knowing that you’re pitching in to save the earth by reducing litter can be satisfying in its own way!
Amalia is a spammer, please don't respond to this post which brings it back to the top of the list. Now we have to work to bury it again.

Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.
My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
