Recycling automatic mindset can save money, time and the planet, Keep your eyes and mind open, Drywall scraps found first day of looking
My mom gave me a heads up yesterday that a plumber is coming next Saturday to repair a drain pipe embedded between two walls. She asked me to pick up some drywall for the repair afterwards.
She was a depression era child and trained me well.
The first thing I thought of was not scheduling a trip to the home improvement store but to first check if I had some scraps on hand and if not to keep my eyes open for discards.
Well, not even half way into the first day of looking I hit the motherload.
A construction waste dumpster, within walking distance of my home had plenty. Perfect sizes and some 5 gallon buckets for coffee grounds transport or other projects.
Recycling is a mindset. Make it your first thought, automatic.
You will save money, time and the planet.
