#Circulareconomy

We are all used to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. #reducereuserecycle But to create a truly circular economy, we need to add refurbish, reinvent and repair. ACE Recycling is committed to helping you with every aspect of a #circulareconomy.  

#Reduce – buy less, but also, buy what can be reused.  Our linear economy is based on single use – buy, use, throw way.  The linear model is not #sustainable. One small thing I did was to buy #reusable straws.  

#Reuse – aim for #multipleuse products. I also shop with cloth bags.

#Recycle – #ACERecycling has recycle bins EVERYWHERE!  We are constantly looks for #partnerships to offer more options for recycling more materials.  We currently have a partnership with @resinate for pill bottles and dispensary bottles.  We welcome these partnerships, because our goal is to #keepitoutoflandfills

#Refurbish – our #ITexperts can take two non-working devices and get at least one working again! Electronics are surprisingly easy to up-grade, most people however are intimidated by it.  WE AREN’T!! 

#Repair – think your laptop is a goner? It might not be – bring it to us! AZ Complete PCI can fix just about anything!

#Reinvent – this one is REALLY FUN!  Here are just a few ideas: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=crafts+with+old+keyboards
