Recycling conserves natural resources. Instead of mining, harvesting or drilling for raw materials, we can reclaim metal, oil, glass and fiber from our trash. It takes less energy and creates less pollution to reclaim these materials.

Recycling saves landfill space. By recycling you reduce the bulk and weight of your trash. Landfills fill up slower when communities recycle, thus extending the life of old landfills.

Recycling saves you and your government’s money. When communities recycle they delay the cost of new landfills. Cities and individuals pay by the ton to have trash disposed of. Recycling greatly reduces the weight of garbage and lowers trash fees.
