  • What is Recycling: 7 Benefits of Recycling
  • Presented by Pacebutler Corporation (http://www.pacebutler.com)
  • 110 years after the first recycling plant was established, the United States today has one of the highest recycling rates in the world.
  • US Recycling Rate (1960-2008) chart, figures according to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
  • There is still so much room for growth - 55 percent of the 250 million tons of solid waste end up in our landfills.
  • What is Recycling? Whenever we try and define recycling, we need to think of the three r's of modern waste management: reduce, reuse, recycle.
  • “Reduce" means: Decreasing unnecessary and wasteful purchases, decreasing the volume of waste, and decreasing pollutants.
  • "Reuse" means taking care of our things so that they can last longer, repurposing used items, donating or giving away unwanted stuff, and upcycling waste materials.
  • Buy Recycled: products made from recycled materials to complete the cycle or close the recycling loop.
  • It's not recycling if no one buys or makes use of the end (recycled) product.
  • Recycling is a PROCESS, which includes: the Collection and Segregation of waste materials, the Processing and Remanufacturing of these materials, and the purchase and use of the recycled product.
  • Recycling benefits you, society, and the environment.
  • The 7 Benefits of Recycling are: Financial Benefit, Conservation of Resources, Energy savings, Community Building, Jobs creation, Strong economy, and Environmental Protection.
  • Tangible financial benefits include people gaining income from selling recyclables or unwanted items from home and the savings that cities and counties make when landfill costs are reduced due to recycling.
  • Resources Conservation: Throwing away a single aluminum can, versus recycling it, is like pouring out six ounces of gasoline. Last year, Americans recycled enough aluminum cans to conserve the energy equivalent to more than 15 million barrels of oil.
  • For every 1 million tons of steel recycled saves 1.3 million tons of iron ore, 718,000 tons of coal, and 62,000 tons of limestone.
  • Recycling Saves Energy: It requires more energy to manufacture a brand new aluminum can than it does to recycle 20 aluminum cans.
  • Recycling Builds Community: People work together, Communicate, Share ideas, and Support each other when they're involved in a worthy common endeavor like recycling.
  • Recycling Creates Jobs: 10,000 tons of waste when incinerated, creates 1 job; when landfilled, creates 6 jobs; when recycled, creates 36 jobs!
  • Recycling helps build a strong Economy in terms of: Lower waste management costs, Cheaper production materials, Energy Savings, and Jobs Creation.
  • Recycling helps protect the Environment: Reduced contamination risk from landfills, Reduced pollution, Reduced environmental impact from mining or extracting fresh raw materials are all direct results of recycling.
  • Clean Air: 82 million tons of waste recycled in 2006 is equivalent to taking 39 million cars off the road for one full year!
  • What is recycling?Recycling is a choice: The plastic bottle, paper scrap, or used cell phone wont recycle itself. Its up to YOU to make that choice to recycle.
  • Recycling is a way of life: Once you make the choice to recycle, And stick to that choice everyday, Recycling becomes second nature - a way of life.
  • Lets all recycle today.
