"Recycling" means separating, collecting, processing, marketing, and ultimately using a material that would have been thrown away. This morning's newspaper can be recycled for another morning's news or other paper products. Cans and bottles can be crafted for other uses.

Quality products and packaging are being made from recovered materials. We can all help create markets for recyclable by buying and using these products.
