Pan-Demonium

Admit it; the relationship between you and your trusty cookware has gone south. The beaten, burnt and downtrodden pots and pans look more at home in an antique museum than a kitchen. Is it time to say goodbye? Shed a couple of tears and do it with aplomb as Albuquerque Recycling, Inc. teams up with Whole Foods to bring you Pots ’n' Pans Recycling today from 11 am to 3 pm. Instead of in the nearest trash can, donate those veteran aluminum, iron, and copper pots and pans, as well as electric skillets and lids to the Whole Foods on Carlisle (2103 Carlisle NE). Doing so can save up to 1.3 million pounds of waste over the course of a year. Who woulda thunk it? For more, check out albuquerquerecycling.net. (Adam Fox)
