Time to Start Recycling!

Let's Go!

How Recycling Helps

  • reduces landfills- Products not biodegradable can stay in landfills for centuries. Recycling paper, plastic, and aluminum can help eliminate the substantial amount of waste in landfills.
  • reduces energy consumption- Producing new paper from recycled paper is a lot less expensive than creating new paper from wood.
  • decreases pollution- Landfills produce harmful gases that are emitted into the atmosphere. More recycling reduces the amount of waste that produces the harmful gasses.
  • decreases cost- Recycling does not have to just include paper, aluminum, or plastic; leaves, cut grass, and egg shells make an excellent compost. Homemade compost compliments our wallets!
