Recycling:

 

Have tires, electronics, waste oil, or other hard to recycle materials? The Shady Grove Transfer Station in Montgomery county accepts all of these things, including all regular recycling, flourescent light bulbs, rigid plastics, batteries, and more! Reduce and reuse if possible, and recycle when you can't!

 

Live in Prince Georges county? We have our own place to recycle things! Check out the Brown Station Road Landfill.  The Landfill has several recycling facilities within the complex, which include the Household Hazardous Waste Acceptance Site and Electronics Recycling Acceptance Site (Thursday, Friday and Saturday ONLY) and sites for yard waste, scrap tires and appliances (Monday through Saturday).

 

NTRecycling - Electronics Recycling: Electronics recycling can be difficult, but this organization is 100% Zero Waste, recycling or reusing all electronics. Visit their website for more information.

Care to stay tuned to other amazing organizations here in the DMV area?  Here are some of our favorites! Let them know we sent ya! ;)

 

Forested:

Bowie MD

 

Forested is a 10 acre forest garden just outside of Washington DC. What is a forest garden, you ask? A forest garden is agricultural system that mimics the structure of a forest - large overstory trees, smaller fruit trees, shrubs and berries, animals, ground covers, roots and mushrooms - these interacting layers comprise a complex and well designed system that allows for a diversity of crops. In our opinion, it's the future of agriculture, nevermind a large part of the history of agriculture!

 

They do a much better job of explaining it though - head on over to their site for a list of upcoming events, classes, and tours.
