About Us Why Recycle? What We Recycle Recycling With Us Getting Started
Why recycle?
Recycling is an important means for your business to reduce costs, while doing the right thing for both your employees and the environment.
Recycling reduces costs and saves real money for your business.
Recycling reduces the cost of doing business, generates additional revues
from valuable scrap paper and materials, consolidates your vendors, and
saves valuable storage space.
Recycling is good for our environment.
Recycling conserves our natural resources and energy and reduces water
pollution, air pollution, landfill space, and green house gas emissions that
impact global warming.
Recycling is good for your employees.
Your employees will be feel good about your efforts to recycle. By implementing
a recycling program, you're letting your employees (and vendors) know that you
care about your community and the environment. And recycling lowers the risks
of injuries and accidents, too.

Recycling makes a difference.
If you’re still not sure whether your business can really make a difference by recycling, think again. Recycling works. Reducing your organization’s carbon footprint helps our environment, while saving you money. Here’s 10 facts about recycling that every business should know:

Fact 1: For every one ton of paper recycled, you save:

  • 17 trees
  • 6953 gallons of water
  • 463 gallons of oil
  • 587 pounds of air pollution
  • 3.06 cubic yards of landfill space
  • 4077 Kilowatt hours of electricity

Fact 2: In 2007, 50% of all new paper manufactured was recycled, equating to 42 million tons of recyclable material that would have otherwise ended up in landfills.

Fact 3: Recycling creates jobs – SIX times as many jobs as conventional land filling.

Fact 4: Recycling a single day’s printing of The New York Times Sunday edition would save 75,000 trees.

Fact 5: Recycling aluminum saves 95% of the energy needed to produce new aluminum from raw materials. Recycling one ton of aluminum saves as much energy as the amount of electricity the average home uses over 10 years.

Fact 6: The 36 billion aluminum cans dumped in landfills last year had a scrap value of more than $600 million.

Fact 7: Every year we produce enough plastic film to shrink-wrap the entire state of Texas.

Fact 8: About 70% of all metal is used just once and discarded (only 30% is recycled). 

Fact 9: American businesses throw away enough scrap paper each year to fill nearly 20 Sears Towers from top to bottom.

Fact 10: Your customers will think more highly of your business if you have a well-designed recycling program.  If your business doesn’t have a solid recycling program, it should.
