Recycling is not just an activity for large corporations — recycling can start in your own home. Making sure that you don’t throw away recyclable products, such as newspapers, sales circulars, cans and plastic shopping bags you can help increase the amount of materials diverted from our waste stream. Recycling saves energy by reusing resources instead of culling virgin materials and reduces the need for landfilling and incineration.
