The importance of recycling has never been greater. Take a moment to rediscover recycling and learn how it is working, why it is important to continue, and how it is essential to all of our lives every day.
Recycling is Essential
Recycling is needed to provide the material that is repurposed to create thousands of new products, goods or other materials we use in our everyday life.
Recycled paper, plastics, metals, rubber, electronics, and other commodity‐grade materials feed critical U.S. manufacturing operations that are producing paper products, rebar, wiring, tubing, transportation, packaging and other key goods.
Recycling is essential and we can all participate to sustain this critical process by choosing to live a more sustainable lifestyle, using our decisions to positively affect our planet, and renewing our materials to be used again.
