recycling information

Recycling Saves Natural ResourcesBy making products from recycled materials instead of virgin materials, we conserve land and reduce the need to drill for oil and dig for minerals.

 

Recycling Saves Energy It usually takes less energy to make recycled products; recycled aluminum, for example, takes 95% less energy than new aluminum from bauxite ore.

 

Recycling Saves Clean Air and Water In most cases, making products from recycled materials creates less air pollution and water pollution than making products from virgin materials.

 

Recycling Saves Landfill Space When the materials that you recycle go into the making of new products, they do not go into landfills or incinerators, so landfill space is conserved.

 

Recycling Saves Money and Creates JobsThe recycling process creates far more jobs than landfills or incinerators, and recycling can frequently be the least expensive waste management method for cities and towns.
