By Erin Nichols, Fox San Antonio —
Most everyone can agree that recycling is an important step in protecting our environment, but there’s a new website offering to recycle items that typically are only used “in the bedroom.”
Scarletgirl.com is offering to take up used sex toys and recycle them in an environmentally friendly way.
Officials with San Antonio, Texas’ Waste Management Department said up until a few days ago, they had no idea such a site existed, until they discovered the company linked itself to sanantonio.gov.
How’d it happen?
The city provides a link to a search engine, Earth 911, that helps people find places to take their recyclable items.
Earth 911 has an adult toys category.
According to Scarletgirl.com, unwanted or broken sex toys are dismantled and properly recycled and not reused.
An official says the link to the search engine was removed from the city’s page after deciding the site could be offensive. They encourage people to keep recycling, but when it comes to bedroom items – you’re on your own.
Officials say they are now working to find a replacement search engine to help people find where to recycle other items.
