Why Recycle?

Recyclables are materials that can be remanufactured into new products after serving their original purpose. Everyone gains by recycling and reducing waste. Collecting recyclables reduces waste disposal charges and can provide revenues through the sale of collected materials. Collecting recyclables also ensures an adequate supply of raw materials for recycled products. In addition, recycling is good for the environment. It saves energy and natural resources, reduces air and water pollution, and decreases the volume of garbage going into landfills.
