BAY AREA RECYCLING DIRECTORY NOW AVAILABLE FROM U.S. EPA

 BAY AREA RECYCLING DIRECTORY NOW AVAILABLE FROM U.S. EPA
 SAN FRANCISCO, April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) today announced the publication of a new directory of recycling services in the Bay Area. The Bay Area Reuse Recycle Guide lists over 500 locations in nine counties where people can recycle everything from aluminum cans to kitchen sinks.
 "The opportunities for reuse and recycling are vast -- much greater than most of us realize," said Daniel W. McGovern, chief of U.S. EPA's western regional office. "The Guide shows that almost anything can be recycled, almost anywhere in the Bay Area."
 The Guide is divided into sections that cover San Francisco, Marin, Sonoma, Napa, Solano, Contra Costa, Alameda, Santa Clara, and San Mateo counties. Each county section is further divided into categories that include appliances, automotive, building materials, clothing, compost, curbside recycling, flea markets, furniture, hazardous materials, household items, metals, office recycling, wood, and phone numbers to call for local recycling information.
 The environmental benefits of reuse and recycling are widely recognized. These practices reduce the environmental damage associated with production of raw materials such as wood and metals, save much of the energy and water used in manufacturing, and reduce the need for landfills. There are economic benefits as well. The consumer becomes a seller who can get cash for some items, and the recycling industries create more jobs per dollar invested than raw materials production industries.
 The Guide will be updated periodically to keep pace with changes in the Bay Area's recycling industries. Copies can be obtained free of charge by calling U.S. EPA at 415-744-2074.
