Help, I'm drowning in cardboard!
I just bought a ton of furniture. New furniture. While the earth friendly person in me says I should have bought used after much too long searching through craigslist and garage sales I just simply had to get something.
So here I am stuck with a ton of cardboard. Sure, I can wait until the curbside pickup next week and in the meantime be surrounded by enough cardboard to build my house again in paper form but I'd like to get rid of it quicker and that's where this app comes in.
iRecycle asks you what you want to recycle and lets you know where you can take it. A simple search of cardboard turned up 45 places to recycle cardboard. Granted, the last one is a bit of a stretch being that it's in Dallas and I'm in Seattle but all the others were reasonable and close-ish.
The app lets you put in a number of things that you might want to recycle and seems to pull up just about every reasonable place you'd consider, but what's better is that it lists virtually every possible way to get in touch with the place in question. Do they have a website that will tell you more? The app will take you there.
For the local dump (which accepts and processes recyclables) it lists their website, phone number, lists what's accepted and restrictions and even shows you a map to the location.
In all this app is pretty perfect for what it's meant to do. Now if it'd come pick up that cardboard I'd be even happier.
