Recycling Program

recycleLandfilling is Not a Sustainable Planning Approach Landfills are the largest source of humancaused methane, a greenhouse gas 21 times more powerful than carbon dioxide.

 

The EPA admits all landfill liners will eventually leak and their toxic leachate, or garbage juice, can seep into and contaminate soil and groundwater supplies. Roughly 20% of the sites on the Superfund list (the nation’s most hazardous sites) are solid waste landfills.

 

Did you know…  nearly 90% of what we throw away could potentially be recovered through reuse, recycling or composting. more Americans recycle than vote. there are roughly 9,000 curbside recycling programs and 12,000 drop-off centers across the country. some communities currently recycle and compost more than 60% of their waste.

 

What happens to recyclables?  Glass bottles become new glass bottles.  Aluminum cans are turned back into aluminum cans, and can be recycled almost indefinitely.  Steel cans are used in other steel products such as car parts and construction materials, and can also be recycled over and over again.  Plastic bottles are recycled into carpet, clothing, auto parts, and new bottles.  Paper is recycled into new paper.  Some grades of paper can be recycled up to seven times.

 

Think Green... RECYCLE!
