It pays to recycle during November, when financial incentives make it hard to resist during America Recycles Day activities.

You can save up to $50 in disposal costs by taking advantage of no-charge recycling offers at the Columbus/Bartholomew Recycling Center, 720 South Mapleton St.

Amnesty Day will be observed from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 18 at the recycling center.

Up to four pick-up size or smaller tires, with rims removed, will be accepted at no cost, a savings of $2 to $10 per tire.

You can also drop off up to two CFC or refrigerant-containing appliances for free, a savings of $20.

The center will also accept up to two propane gas tanks at no charge.
