Why do we recycle
1. Recycling reduces our use of landfills and incinerators because it reduces the     amount of garbage we throw away by 25-50%! That's alot of trash!
2.
Recycling protects our heatlh and environment because it removes harmful     substances and pollution from the waste stream, which is all of the waste or     garbage in our community. Did you know that one quart of motor oil can     contaminate one million gallons of water? Yikes!!!
3.
Recycling conserves our natural resources because it reduces our need for raw     materials. For example, if we recycle paper we don't have to cut down as many     trees.
4.
Recycling saves energy. When we make new paper from old paper, we use 60%     less energy than making it from virgin timber.
5.
Recycling saves Rands. Glass is 100% recyclable and can be used over and
    over again. The process of making new glass from old glass is very efficient and     produces hardly any waste or unwanted byproducts.
