Recycling is an important part of effective waste management programs. Items are returned back to the manufacturing process to make new items – reducing resource use and pollution.
Recycling also reduces demand and wear and tear on local garbage processing facilities – such as Pope/Douglas’ Waste to Energy Facility.
