Helpful recycling tips

To the Editor:

Congrats, Northwest Herald, for noting on Earth Day all the new ways of recycling old things from our modern age, such as electronics and Styrofoam.

The question was answered that, yes, they can be recycled, and here’s where and how.

Styrofoam when discarded across the landscape looks like snow, and with the trend of recycling by Lakewood, Algonquin and, beginning this Earth Day, Barrington Hills, it may fade from being seen along the roadside.

Sharing is caring and we all learned some helpful tips.
