How it works
Recycling that actually works
bottles used every
hour in America
trees saved per ton of cardboard recycled
gallons of oil saved per ton of aluminum recycled
of C02 emissions saved per ton of recycled bottles
The Recycling Crisis
In January 2018, China banned the import of most plastics from around the world due to high contamination rates. America has started to incinerate and landfill its recyclables since China’s ban.
Burning or burying these contaminated plastics dumps tons of toxins and carcinogens into the atmosphere.
Most recyclables that go in the curbside bin aren’t being recycled. Items placed inside this bin get commingled with other types of trash and then burned or buried.
With your help, segregation from the start will reduce contamination rates and maintain marketability of the recyclable commodities.
