Why Recycle?

The U.S. Is the #1 trash-producer in the world at 1,609 pounds per person a year. This means %5 of the world's people generate 40% of the world's waste! So, bring your aluminum, cardboard, paper, plastic, and electronics!

Aluminum

The US population discards enough aluminim each year to rebuild the US commercial air fleet four times over.

Cardboard

Recycled cardboard only takes 75% of the energy needed to make new cardboard.

Mixed Paper

The amount of wood and paper we throw away each year is enough to heat 50,000,000 homes for 20 years.

Plastics #1 - #7

It takes about 5 plastic bottles to make fiber filling for a ski coat, 25 recycled bottles to make a fleece coat or 26 bottles to make a polyester suit.
