Corks

Wine corks can be reused in various creative ways, or tossed in the garbage. They cannot go in your recycling bin. If you don't have a use for your corks, they can nevertheless have a second life through ReCORK, which recycles natural corks(no plastic or metal) to make shoe soles. Ryan & Casey Liquors in Greenfield is now a drop-off spot for ReCORK. Bring your (natural) wine corks back to the store for recycling. Another option: Yemm & Hart, which produces recycled building materials, turns used corks into floor and wall tiles. Consumer pays for shipping (follow the link for much more info).
