• Recycling

    Recycling waste reduces pollution, energy consumption and the need for raw materials, helping preserve our natural resources.

Recycling: Short & Simple

Don’t let a few rules keep you from being a responsible steward of the planet. It’s almost easier to recycle than to trash products — and so much more responsible.

The Home Depot can help. We carry environmentally-friendly products like moving boxes made from recycled materials or rain barrels that allow you to recycle rain water.  We also offer recycling programs for rechargeable batteries, CFL bulbs and old incandescent holiday light strings.
