Earth Day can be every day

Reduce, reuse and recycle are three words we hear a lot about throughout the year, but on Earth Day they mean even more.

Some businesses on the Central Coast are making it easier to take part in Earth Day, every day.

"So, we have a recycling plant behind our store," said Daniel Noack, Target Executive Team Leader. "The idea behind it is to let Target give back to our community."

Target accepts bottles, cans, paper, and more from anybody who wants to drop by. You can use the machine to recycle and it doesn't cost a thing, but you'll have to go down the street for your electronics.

"We'll take anything for recycling, any electronics, even if you bought it from here or not, we want to make sure we take care of it," said Mathew Jordan, Best Buy Manager.

Best Buy will take phones, cameras and more.

"Cables to batteries, you know, DVD players to TVs, computers, laptops, and tablets. The list goes on and on," said Jordan.

Even though a small cell phone or cable wire may not seem like much, it contributes to a bigger picture.

"Best Buy, actually, every minute that we're open it's about 409 pounds of e-waste that we actually recycle," said Jordan.

Both Target and Best Buy will continue their recycling programs and encourage people to bring in recyclable bottles, cans and electronics year-round.
