    Sending appliances to a recycling company definitely feels like something we should do more often. We have a lot of old and unused kitchen appliances that we don’t need anymore, so rather than let them just sit around doing nothing, recycling them feels a lot better. I’ll look for any recycling plants we can send these appliances off to as soon as we can.
