I don't think there is one around here. Why don't we use this place to give hints or ask questions?

One hint I received recently regards plastic water/soda bottles. Did you know that you should put them into the recycle bin WITHOUT the top? Not all recyclers recycle those tops in the same way or with the bottles. If the top is left on and depending on the recycler, they will just toss the bottle and not recycle it.

So, remove those tops.

It's not recycling, but it helps reduce waste -

You can be removed from mailing lists and reduce catalog waste.

It's an excellent suggestion. Reducing waste and recycling are both important. Thanks!
