Wondering what to do with pet food bags, caulking tubes and used paintbrushes? Terracycle wants you to recycle them. The company will be adding recycling bins to Home Depot and Petco locations to gather all sorts of things you didn’t think you could recycle.

Home Depot locations will be talking saw blades, nursery pots, furnace filters and paint brushes. The items will be recycled into clocks, sturdier nursery pots and other items.

Petco stores will have bins to accept pet food bags which will be made into tote bags. The bins should be in place nationwide by the

middle of 2010.

It is nice to know that there are companies out there that are trying to figure out what to do with some of our previously unrecyclable items. I just hope that Terracycle will be able to find a market for all those pet food tote bags so they can keep collecting!
