Wine waste

I have a problem.

I absolutely hate throwing away bottles. It seems wasteful.

But since I can't very well continue to let the damn things accumulate in my apartment, which is cramped enough as it is, I supposed I better do the best thing and recycle.

Memphis has five recycling drop-off centers for apartment dwellers and others who can't take advantage of curbside pickup.

Recycling Drop-Off Centers

Downtown — Located in the gravel parking area on Mud Island Drive at the North entrance to Mud Island Park.
East Memphis — Located on Moore Ed, approx. 300 yards off Germantown Parkway So., just south of the Shelby Showplace Arena at the Agricenter International.
Midtown — Located on the corner of cooper and Walker at the First Congregational Church.
Southeast — Located at the Hickory Hill Community Center at 3910 Ridgeway.
FCR — 3197 Farrisview Blvd. (located off American Way just west of Lamar intersection) This is the City's recycling processing facility operated by FCR of Tennessee. Place recycling material in carts located just outside the gate.

The site also says, "All empty clear, brown and green bottles and jars are accepted. You can leave labels attached, but remember to remove lids. Rinsing is not required."

OK. You are going to have to hot glue them together to make a kitschy end table.

Ooh, yeah. You could smash them up and make little glass tiles. What are those called? Ummmmdaaahhhh...

It begins with an M, right? Whatevsies.

Remember when it was cool to buy drip candles and make neon wax patterns on old bottles? And then my mom would come upstairs and accuse her children of devil worship? That was special.

C'mon, man. You can do something hip and imaginative with those bottles. Why do the right thing when you can do the avant-garde thing?
