— Recycling is important. Every day we throw away things that are empty, broken, used or unwanted. Recycling transforms these old things into brand new useful things.
— The best solution for land, air, and water pollution lies in the 3 R’s: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
— Recycling and composting in the U.S. reduced landfill waste by 34.5 percent or 87 million tons in 2012.
