Some of the year's most unique recycling stories #americarecyclesday Diaper house? Recycling flashmob? Yep.

So even if you're like me and programmed to recycle, today is still a great chance to become involved in a local recycling awareness event or find a way to dispose of all those weird items (bowling trophies and bras, anyone?) that can't exactly be collected curbside.

This is really just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to articles throughout MNN on the topics of waste and landfill-avoidance. So take a look-see. And yep, those are my recycling bins (well, not really mine ... I live in a six-unit apartment building) waiting at the curb for a.m. pickup. Not the prettiest sight but much better than the alternative.
