Why recycle?

Landfilling items that could be recycled or composted is costly, uses limited fossil fuels, increases air pollution and wastes resources. Paper and food waste are the largest components of the region's garbage. Recycling reduces pollution to air, water and soil, protects habitat, creates jobs, conserves natural resources, saves energy and helps sustain our environment.
