Hey, Izz, what are you doing with my old bulbs, glasses, batteries and ink cartridges? I was about to throw those out.

You can't just throw them in the trash: they all need some kind of special disposal. We can donate old glasses. The bulbs and batteries have all kinds of crummy chemicals in them so they have to be gotten rid of specially. And our school gets money back by collecting old printer ink thingies.

If only there was some way to let people know what they can do with all this stuff. It seems so complicated.
