#1:Saves Natural Resources
By making products from recycled materials instead of virgin materials, we conserve land and reduce the need to drill for oil and dig for minerals.
#2 Saves Energy
It usually takes less energy to make recycled products; recycled aluminum, for example, takes 95% less energy than new aluminum from bauxite ore.
#3 Saves Clean Air and Water
In most cases, making products from recycled materials creates less air pollution and water pollution than making products from virgin materials.
#4 Saves Landfill Space
When the materials that you recycle go into new products, they don't go into landfills or incinerators, so landfill space is conserved.
#5 Saves Money and Creates Jobs
The recycling process creates far more jobs than landfills or incinerators, and recycling can frequently be the least expensive waste management method for cities and towns.
