What’s So Cool About Recycling?

  • Recycling Saves Energy.
    • It takes far less energy to make products using recycled materials rather than virgin materials.
    • And yes, with our curbside pickup service, the energy needed to take your bag to the curb is WAY less than the energy required to take your recyclables to one of our convenient Drop-Off Locations.  (We know you were thinking it!)
  • Recycling Saves Landfill Space & Taxpayer Money.
    • Landfills are very expensive to build and maintain.
    • According to the U.S. EPA, recycling (including composting) diverted 68 million tons of material away from landfills and incinerators in 2001, up from 34 million tons in 1990.
  • Recycling Creates Jobs and Promotes Economic Development.
    • Incinerating 10,000 tons of waste creates one job; landfilling 10,000 tons of waste creates six jobs. Recycling 10,000 tons of waste creates 36+ jobs.
    • Recycling creates 1.1 million U.S. jobs, $236 billion in gross annual sales and $37 billion in annual payrolls.
    • Thousands of U.S. companies have saved millions of dollars through voluntary recycling programs. They wouldn’t recycle if it didn’t make economic sense.
    • See our page Why We Recycle for many more of recycling ‘s economic benefits and interesting facts!
  • Recycling Reduces the Use of Toxic Chemicals.
    • Making products from already refined waste materials reduces — and often avoids altogether — the need for manufacturers to use toxic chemicals, essential when using virgin materials.
  • Recycling Reduces Dependence on Foreign Oil.
    • The national recycling rate of 30 percent saves the equivalent of more than five billion gallons of gasoline, reducing dependence on foreign oil by 114 million barrels.
  • Recycling Saves Trees.
    •  Half the Earth’s forests are gone, and up to 95 percent of the original forest area in the U.S. has been cut down.
