Facts about recycling 1 ton of corrugated cardboard

  • Saves 17 trees from having to be cut down and used for pulp

  • Saves 7000 gallons of water

  • Cuts pollution 95%

  • Saves 11 barrels 462 gallons of oil

  • Saves more than 3 cubic yards of landfill space

  • Corrugated can be recycled an average of 7 times before the fibers become too short and they are filtered out as sludge during the pulping process. The sludge is then ready for disposal, but often has one more usage and that is as daily cover at landfills in place of soil.

Taking Just A Moment

Taking just a moment to put your newspaper, soda can and glass spaghetti jar in the recycling bin will save everyone years in environmental harm from production of new materials, over crowded landfills and the depletion of our natural resources.

4000 Years

When we do not recycle at least our glass or aluminum we cost the earth in power usage, water and oil usage and landfill usage; glass takes up to 4000 years to decompose in a landfill yet can be recycled indefinitely.

Earn Money

Recycling can be done at home as well as in conjunction with city programs. Many scrap yards pay for scrap metal including the soda cans and soup cans we use every day.
