    For an extra five points towards Lilac Goes Green team's efforts, I'll add that I consciously avoid purchasing new objects, repurpose whenever possible, and make examples of ways to keep a low environmental footprint.

    What are some more "R's" you could add to your daily practice to reduce your waste?

    Monroe County's "Recycle Right" downloadable brochure (https://www2.monroecounty.gov/files/DES/education/Recycle%20Right%20final%207.31.18.pdf) clarifies what the county will accept for recycling. Last apparent update was 2018, and some materials, though listed, may still go to landfill. Better to purchase products with less packaging when possible.
