Recycling keeps waste out of the landfill

According to the EPA in the U.S. in 2018 people generated 292 million tons of solid waste. We were able to recycle about 32% keeping 93 million tons of solid waste out of the landfill. As more people populate the United States it's important that we all continue recycling efforts and improve recycling rates because landfill land is limited and resources like paper plastic, aluminum and steel can be used again.

Recycling Creates jobs

Recycling has created more than 681,000 jobs. On a national average there are 1.17 jobs, $65,230 Wages and 9,420 tax revenue for every 1000 U.S. Tons of recyclables collected and recycled

Recycling reduces our need for new raw materials

Thanks to recycling it is estimated that nearly 75% of all aluminum ever produced is still in use today. Aluminum can be used over and over again , but only if it is properly sorted into recycling containers.

Recycling conserves energy

For example recycling paper allows it to be reused to make new paper products reducing the amount of trees and other natural resources used to make new paper recycling a ton of paper can save the energy equivalent to 166 gallons of gasoline.

Recycling reduces pollution

Recycling reduces pollution by reducing greenhouse gases that would otherwise be released in the process of manufacturing paper aluminum plastic from raw materials.
