WHY RECYCLE?

Each of us produces 4.4 pounds of solid waste each day, adding up to almost a ton of trash per person, per year.

► Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a tv for 3 hours, or the equivalent of a half-gallon of gasoline.

► If every American recycled just 1/10th of their newspapers, we would save 25 MILLION trees a year.

► One BILLION trees worth of paper are thrown away every year in the U.S.

► The energy saved from recycling one glass bottle can run a 100-watt light bulb for 4 hours.  It causes 20% less air pollution and 50% less water pollution than when a new bottle is made from raw materials.

► One quart of motor oil, if disposed of improperly, can contaminate up to 2 MILLION gallons of fresh water.
