Question of the week: What are some of your favorite ways to reuse ‘trash’?

Published: 6/13/2019 12:15:24 AM

THE THREE R’s – reduce, reuse, recycle – take on new urgency every day as the world comes to terms with a disturbing amount of trash strangling the planet. We’ve heard a lot lately about reducing the amount of trash created, including legislation such as plastic bag and straw bans. The challenges facing the recycling industry have made headlines, too. But today we’re going to focus on that middle R: reuse. In this land of Yankee frugality, we’ve seen some pretty interesting repurposing of trash, and we bet you have, too. And so our question of the week is this: What are some of your favorite ways to reuse items that would otherwise end up at the landfill? Email your response by noon on Tuesday, June 18, to Please keep it between 150 and 400 words, and include an address and phone number for verification. We’ll run a selection in next Thursday’s Forum section.
