Reduce & Reuse
• Save energy: It takes less energy to make recycled products than it does to use new materials.
• Save natural resources: Using virgin materials often requires extracting and processing raw materials from the earth. This process can pollute our air, water and land.
• Save landfill space: Recycled items go into new products instead of wasting landfill space.
• Create jobs: Recycling creates more jobs – 6:1 – over landfilling.
• Save money: Decrease the size of your garbage container and increase the size of your recycle container – you’ll save money and the environment.
