Yard Waste

Yard waste is the term used for items that are collected separately from solid waste and household garbage. This is done to conserve space in landfills. Waste can be made up of grass clippings, leaves, garden waste, and other plant matter. It may also include materials such as branches and brush cuttings removed from lawns or gardens during yard work or pruning. Take shrub clippings to your local waste management center and discard in an area designated for yard waste. Garbage collection and recycling are collected separately.

Recycling is not to be bagged but loose into tip cart.

Did you know aluminum has no limit to the number of times it can be recycled? Another interesting fact about plastics: recycling plastic saves twice as much energy as burning it in an incinerator.

Starting a commercial recycling program is a great way to reduce your environmental impact and show your customers that you care about sustainability. It’s also an easy way to reduce waste and save money in the long run, as installing recycling bins and starting a commercial recycling program costs nothing more than the initial investment.

Commercial recycling programs help businesses reduce their environmental impact by reducing pollution and conserving resources. Not only does commercial recycling help reduce pollution caused by landfills, but it also conserves valuable resources such as water, timber, and energy.

Why Recycle?

There are many benefits to recycling. Here are a just a few of the recycling basics:

  • Reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators
  • Conserves natural resources such as water, minerals and timber
  • Increases economic security by tapping a domestic source of materials
  • Prevents pollution by reducing the need to collect new raw materials
  • Saves energy
  • Supports American manufacturing and conserves resources
  • Helps create jobs in the manufacturing and recycling industries

How does recycling help reduce pollution?

Recycling conserves energy and natural resources, reduces pollution, and helps to keep our environment clean and safe.

Every year, we produce millions of tons of waste, including everything from packaging and products to damaged or outdated technology. Much of this waste ends up in our landfills, where it emits methane, a greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change.

Recycling helps to reduce this pollution by reusing materials that would otherwise end up in landfills. It also conserves energy and natural resources, as it takes less energy and resources to recycle materials than it does to produce new materials from scratch. In addition, recycling helps to create jobs and stimulates the economy.

Step of Recycling?

The three pillars of recycling are:

1. Collection and Processing
Methods include drop-off centers, refund programs and curbside recycling pick upManufacturing

2. Making new products with recycled materials
Common household materials include newspapers, aluminum cans and laundry detergent bottles

3. Purchasing New Products Made from Recycled Materials
You can do your part by purchasing items that contain recycled material or products that could be recycled

These three steps create a continuous loop which is represented by the three arrows of the recycling symbol.

 

How does the recycling of paper differ from the recycling of other products?

The process of recycling paper begins with the collection of paper products, which are then sorted and separated into different grades. The paper is then pulped, and the pulp is made into new paper products.

The recycling of paper is different from the recycling of other products because paper products can be recycled multiple times. Other products, such as plastic or metal, can only be recycled once. This is because paper products are made from a renewable resource, while plastic and metal are not.

Recycling paper is a process that helps to save trees and conserve energy. It takes less energy to recycle paper than it does to produce new paper from scratch. Recycling paper also reduces the amount of pollution that is caused by the paper industry.
