Time to Start Recycling!
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!
