Why Should You Recycle?

Recycling is a vital process that benefits the environment

  • It conserves resources. Paper, glass, and aluminum are materials that you commonly use in your day-to-day life. Recycling allows these materials to be reused; throwing these materials away turns them into single-use objects.
  • It lowers our need to collect raw materials. Collecting and manufacturing raw materials like timber and minerals into goods costs money, time, and energy, and pollutes the environment. When you recycle goods, it reduces the need for collecting and manufacturing new raw materials.
  • It keeps usable materials out of landfills. Waste sanitation collects and delivers trash to landfills or incinerators, which are often major sources of pollution. By recycling, you give the material a new life and avoid contributing to pollution.

Just remember when bringing your regular recycling that it is CLEANDRY, and EMPTY!
