I try to recycle everything possible.  But Waste Management's household recycling is limited.

There are many Wenatchee locations that accept items that are either ineligible in household recycling bins, or not collected in a separate, more selective recycle bin.  There is a glass bin on the Wenatchee Valley College campus, a bin for batteries at Lowes, and a separate bin for aluminum cans at Walmart.  

I like to take advantage of these broader and more specialized opportunities whenever I'm visiting one of these locations around Wenatchee.  For example, I know that if I am at the College I'll want to deposit the glass and cans I obtain there, before leaving campus.  

I've begun developing a record of which materials (that I have an interest in) that are collected in various locations around town.  My list so far is below.  Please help by adding other locations in the comments.
