Learn What to Recycle
Did you know that not everything can be recycled? While we wish it could, there are some Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to recycling. Head over to The Recycle Guide’s recycling rules and etiquette page to learn everything you need to know.
Why Recycling Matters
Were you aware that the average person generates over 4 pounds of trash every day and about 1.5 tons of solid waste per year? Those kinds of numbers really add up quick. Knowledge is power and knowing the impact that your recycling actions can have on the environment is an important factor in the decisions you make each day. Check out this information and you’ll be amazed how much recycling matters.
Find out Where You Can Recycle
Do you know the difference in a landfill, sorting facility, and a dump? Knowing the right place to take your waste will help you stay consistent with recycling all year long. The Recycle Guide has easy to use resources to help you find the closest facility.
