2020 Recycling Video & Poster Contest

Recycling: Then, Now, & Into the Future

Lifting Magnet_present

Recycling has been a part of human history for centuries. From Paul Revere owning a scrap metal yard to families during the great depression reusing flour sacks to make new clothes, recycling has transformed and been a part of our lives throughout time.

Fast forward to today — today’s recycling industry involves sophisticated machinery to process and sort different type of recycling materials needed for manufacturing. Recycling has evolved and adapted over the last 200 years to keep up with the different materials entering the recycling stream. Last year, the U.S. recovered and processed approximately 138 million tons of scrap metal, paper, plastics, electronics, textiles, glass and rubber, saving a lot of energy, reducing greenhouse house emissions, and saving natural resources.
