Letter: Recycling options hard to come by locally

Editor, Gazette-Journal:

There is a big push on to recycle and price on metal are up, but it is almost impossible to get a simple aluminum can crusher.

I went to Walmart … no hand or otherwise can crusher. It was the same story at Home Depot and Lowe’s. I finally found one at Ace Hardware; they had two models. One crusher was called "The Crusher." It sold for $14.79 plus tax. The second one was called "Easy Crush" and it sold for $14.99.

I don’t know about you, but I’m sick to my stomach about all of the money going to the Gloucester landfill and them collecting all of my steel and aluminum for free.

If you are interested in becoming part of a regular pickup route for profit, give me a call at 693-7489.

P.S. Walmart, Lowe’s and Home Depot—get with the program.
