After an election cycle, have you ever wondered what to do with those campaign lawn signs that you agreed to place on your property? Do you call the candidates and offer them back? Take them apart to recycle them? Re-use them for lawn sales?
I decided to take a look on-line to see if New York State had any lawn sign recycling program in place.
Nope. At least not so far as I could see. There are, however, several municipalities who have created such a thing (in Florida for example and of course California).
I wonder if those running for office would agree to do away with lawn signs. Not plausible? Then how about holding onto them to re-use in the case that they run again in the future. Most everyone has an attic, right?
Here is a good link to ‘Planet Green’ where you can read more about the recycling possibilities.
