How and why you should recycle…

The average American creates about 4.48 pounds of trash per day. Currently in the US, 262 million tons of trash is accumulated every year.  Knowing these numbers makes it even more clear how vital recycling is to protect the environment and conserve more of our resources.

While it is common knowledge that recycling can help the environment, there is a good chance that you’ve heard some myths and rumors about how and why to recycle that are not completely true.

As we go over some general guidelines about recycling, remember that the options and rules regarding curbside recycling could change depending on where in the country you live. There are various websites that will allow you to research what is allowed in your area, so be sure you look to see what applies to you and the curbside services in your city or county.
