Household Recycling

The great part about recycling is that it can start in your own home. By ensuring that you don’t discard your recyclable products, such as soup cans, cereal boxes, plastic bags, and newspapers, you can contribute to the tons of material diverted from the waste stream every year. Composting organic materials, such as food scraps and yard clippings, is another way you can prevent further disposal into landfills and incinerators. 

The environmental benefits are just the beginning of the story, as the recycling industry is also responsible for providing 1.1 million jobs in the United States and economic sustainability. In addition to these benefits, recycling is often available and easy to do, thanks to the many communities that offer recycling programs. 

Below, you will find helpful links where you can learn what to recycle, where to recycle, and what resources are available to make recycling a permanent part of your home lifestyle.
