WHAT IS RECYCLING?

R ecycling is the process of collecting and processing materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and turning them into new products.

WHY SHOULD I RECYCLE?

Recycling is a great way to pay it forward to future generations. Disposing of bottles and cans in recycling bins keeps them out of limited capacity landfills and gives these materials a new life.

Did you know that making bottles and cans from recycled material uses less water than making them new from raw materials? Recycling conserves natural resources such as timber, water, and minerals. In today’s drought conditions, saving water is an important step in planning for tomorrow.

When you recycle, you will contribute to your community by reducing the need to collect new raw materials, and by saving energy. Your actions help sustain the environment for future generations.

Every year, the recycling industry creates new well-paying jobs in our community and reduces greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global climate change.
