The High Cost of Not Recycling — 4 Comments

  1. Dear “dmguion”…

    Thank you very much for providing the information about the cost of not recycling on your educational website!

    Currently, the waste management company that removes recyclables from our apartment community is threatening to take away the recycling carts because residents continue to put non-recyclable items into them.

    I will use the info you presented it in a memo that will be distributed to our residents to warn them of the consequences treating recyclables as trash.



  2. I like how you said that it takes less energy to make good from recycled materials than it does from virgin materials. My wife and I would like to make sure that we’re doing our part to take care of the planet, and recycling seems like a great way to do that. We’ll be sure to look further into our options for recycling in the future to accomplish this.

  3. Thanks Dylan, and let me take this comment as an occasion to remind readers that recycling doesn’t mean dragging a special recycling container to the curb. Someone has to make new products from that stuff. And then people have to buy them.
