Does anyone know of a place I can drop off cardboard for recycling? Our apartment complex picks up everything but that, and I have a lot.

Laura, If you live in the city, you can put it out with city recycling. If not, the DeKalb Farmer's Market takes it. Or you can visit www.earth911.org and find a place in or near your zip code.

Thanx to all of those of you who visited today - it was a great crowd of folks, and all of the vendors left with full trucks of recyclables.
