Recycle Those Magazines and Everything Else

Springtime gets me thinking about spring cleaning which means clearing out clutter. Last Friday, What’s Up? Media had a company retreat and we focused on ways to be more productive. One obvious way is to remove the clutter in our lives as well as the clutter on our desks. So I’ve been hauling away extra files, papers, and old magazines.
There has been a nasty rumour going that the stuff you take to the Anne Arundel County Landfill is not really being recycled, particularly glossy colored paper. “Untrue” says Public Information Officer Matt Diehl. Annapolis managiing editor Jame Houck spoke with Matt yesterday and was assured that all paper is recycled. So I have been destributing bags to the editorial staff asking them to “fill them up”. It may take several weeks, but maybe that will give me an excuse to spend some time outside this weekend filling up my recycling bins. Or, I could just clean the top of my desk.
