The average person generates over 4 pounds of trash daily, and about 1.5 tons of solid waste per year.
Americans generate more than 200 million tons of garbage every year, enough to fill Yankee Stadium from top to bottom twice a day.
Over 75% of waste is definitely recyclable, but we only recycle about 30% of it. The plan is to get closer to % 75.
Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to listen to a full album on your iPod. Recycling 100 cans could light your bedroom for two whole weeks. What would recycling your washer could save? Think about it.
Be part of the recycling revolution. Save Planet Earth for future generations to enjoy.
