why recycle?

When you throw stuff in your waste bin:
1. a waste truck collects it from your street
2. everything is taken to landfill
3. it is dumped and buried

If you separate recyclable materials from waste and put recyclables into a clear bag or recycling bin:
1. Materials are collected and sorted
2. Value is captured for those who need it
3. Materials are converted back into raw materials or alternative products

Recycling saves energy and benefits the environment by reducing emissions and keeping valuable materials out of landfill. It allows us to capture value in the materials that would have otherwise been wasted.
