Beyond the Bin

Why Recycle?recycle-clip-art-531607

Save energy. Recycling an aluminum soda can saves as much energy as running a TV for three hours.

Save natural resources and recovers resources that would be lost. Recycling a ton of newspapers saves 17 trees, plus 462 gallons of oil. A 2-liter soda bottle can be recycled into a T-shirt, a park bench, carpeting, or another plastic bottle.

Generate less pollution. When the paper industry makes paper from recycled materials, they reduce the pollution they generate by 95 percent.

Conserve landfill space. In Marshall County, we produce enough trash annually to cover 37 acres 3 feet deep before compacting!

Create jobs. Thirty-two new jobs are created for every 10,000 tons of recycled materials. Sorting those materials sustains 10 times more jobs (per ton) than landfilling.
