A simple idea for a

beautiful future–recycle.

Have you ever asked

yourself the question, why should I recycle? The most obvious answer may be because it helps save landfill space, but recycling can also save energy and natural resources.

Consider these facts. • Recycling one glass bottle saves enough electricity to light a 100-watt bulb for four hours.

• It takes 95 percent less energy to manufacture aluminum cans from recycled cans than from raw ore.

• Recycling one ton of newspaper saves 17 trees and 7,000 gallons of water.

Help conserve our natural resources by recycling. Find out what items your local recycling program will accept, and separate those from your household trash. Make a commitment to recycling today.
