With schools coming to a close for summer vacation, there are tons of paper and books that are thrown away. If these were disposed wisely we can save our valuable natural resources.
While many are always complaining about the lack of maintenance on our environment, its up to us to take the initiative and do our own part and inspire others in the process.
There are some new recycling services that are making it easy for households and schools to participate.
