Our Focus on Recycling This November

POSTED UNDER Recycling & Waste Reduction

Did you know … America Recycles Day is Nov. 15? This year, we thought we’d take the entire month of November to focus on recycling. And that’s what we intend to do, starting … now!

Did you also know … recycling and composting diverted 87 million tons of material away from landfills in 2013?

  • This is up from 15 million tons in 1980
  • And equates to taking more than 39 million cars off the road for a year

However, we still have a long way to go. Though we prevented 87 million tons from being wasted in the landfill, Americans also generated about 254 million tons of trash.

All month we’ll be covering stories on recycling, from what Macy’s is doing to what you can do help your recycling efforts, including out-of-the-box creative recycling.

To get started, we have video from a recent tour the Cincinnati Go Green ERG took of a material recovery facility, where more than 55 tons of recyclable material is processed per hour! See for yourself what recycling looks like behind the scenes.
