What Is Recycling?

Recycling is the process of converting waste materials into new objects or substances. 

 

Benefits Of Recycling


 

Recycling Saves Energy

 

Recycling requires far less energy than producing products from scratch. For example, recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a television for three hours.


 

Recycling Prevents Pollution

 

Recycling helps  prevent pollution by reducing the need for new raw materials. Extracting and processing these new materials creates pollution, including greenhouse gas emissions, toxic chemicals and solid waste.


 

 Recycling Conserves Natural Resources

 

By recycling, we can conserve natural resources like water, forests, minerals and oil. For example, recycling one ton of paper saves 17 trees, 7000 gallons of water and 3 cubic yards of landfill space.


 

Recycling Helps Combat Climate Change

 

The greenhouse gasses emitted from producing new products is one of the leading causes of climate change. Recycling helps  reduce these emissions and combat climate change.



 

Recycling Reduces Waste

 

Approximately one-third of all waste generated in the United States each year is recycled. This diverts millions of tons of waste from landfills and incinerators.

 

By bringing bottles and cans to our recycling center,  you are not only helping the environment, you are also supporting American jobs, saving energy, preventing pollution and conserving natural resources. 

 

So next time you are  about to throw away a recyclable item, remember the many benefits of recycling and give us a call!
