Spring time is traditionally the time to do Spring Cleaning. As a child, I remember helping Mom wash walls. My sister on the inside and me on the outside, we tackled the windows. Even my first job as a car-hop at a drive-in restaurant, required me to wash windows in the spring. Closets got cleaned, and the trash bins got filled to overflowing during Spring Cleaning.
Now I have more in the recycle than in the trash. My community has a Spring Cleaning Recycling Extravaganza. I can fill up my car or truck with all kinds of things I never thought were recyclable: paint, old televisions, shoes, batteries, stained and ragged clothes… You name it and theirs a place to recycle it or repurpose it. The Environmental Defenders and other county volunteers will even unload your unwanted items from your car.
