Recycling Facts  Minimize

Recycling 1 ton of paper saves 17 mature trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 3 cubic yard of landfill space, 2 barrels of oil, and 4000 kilowatt hours of electricity. This is enough energy to power the average American home for 5 months.

Approximately 88% of the energy is saved when plastic is made from recycled plastic rather than from the raw materials of gas and oil.

We use over 80,000,000,000 aluminum soda cans every year. Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a television for 3 hours. (EPA)
