Once an aluminum can isrecycled, it can be part of a new can within sixweeks. During the time it takes you to readthis sentence, 50,000 12-ounce aluminumcans are made.

  6. 6. Recycling Statistics on glass Glass is one of the very few products that canbe completely recycled again and again. Butmost often times, it ends up in landfills and neverdecompose. There is an increased demand forrecycled glass referred to as “cullet” in the glassindustry. Glass and plastic take the longest todecompose but are completely recyclable,therefore, it is important to purchase, recycle,and reuse both glass and plastic products.
  7. 7. CompostComposting is the world’s oldest form of recycling – humans by literally millions of years. A common example is a deciduous tree, which litters the forest floor with hundreds of discarded leaves every fall. And yet these leaves do not build up year after year, they do not release toxins into the surrounding environment, and they do not diminish the productivity of the soil (like much of the trash we produce). Rather, the leaves become food for a different set of organisms, which compost it and return the nutrients to the soil.
