WHY RECYCLE?

TO SAVE NATURAL RESOURCES

  • For each ton of recycled glass used to make new glass, nine gallons of fuel are saved.
  • When paper is made from recycled fibers, 58 percent less water is used - compared to making paper from raw materials.

TO SAVE ENERGY

  • One aluminum can saves enough energy to power a television set for one hour.
  • Two gallons of used motor oil has enough energy to power the average home for 24 hours.

TO SAVE LANDFILL SPACE

  • It cost tax payers millions of dollars to construct new landfills. The less that goes into a landfill, the longer it will last.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

  • REDUCE the amount of waste you make.
  • REUSE as many products and packages as possible.
  • RECYCLE every possible material.

To complete the recycling process, BUY RECYCLED products and those packaged in recycle material.
