Why Recycle?

  • Recycling Conserves Resources - recycling allows used materials to be converted into new products, reducing the need to mine for more natural resources.
  • Recycling Saves Energy - using recycled materials in manufacturing uses considerably less energy than extracting and processing products from raw materials.
  • Recycling Helps Protect the Environment - recycling reduces the need to extract, refine and process raw materials, reducing our impact on the landscape, saving energy and creating less carbon emissions. All of which help tackle climate change.
  • Recycling Reduces Landfill - recycling reduces the amount of waste being sent to landfill.
