Nearly everything we do leaves behind some kind of waste. Individually, each person contributes to about 4.4 pounds of waste per day! To help prevent this waste we can each do our part to reduce, reuse, and recycle the items we use. This helps conserve resources, reduce energy use, and reduce air and water pollution.
It is important that ALL recyclable materials are cleaned and separated. Items deposited in a paper or plastic bag are sent to the landfill, so be sure and remove items from any bags before putting them in the recycle bins.
