Recycling FAQ

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle information:

Everyone can play a role in keeping waste out of landfills by following the principals of reduce, reuse, and recycle.  Finding a way to reduce the amount of waste produced is the first step, as it saves natural resources, protects the environment, and will save money in the long run.  For example, purchase items in bulk or items that have less packaging.

Reusing is the next step in this process.  Examples of reusing include buying used clothing, fixing items instead of purchasing new products, or packing silverware and dishes in lunch instead of using disposable items.

The final step, recycling, is the process of collecting items that would be trash and processing the materials into new products.  This step keeps items out of the landfill and conserves natural resources.  By participating in these actions, everyone can help sustain the environment for future generations.  Recyclerama will help others engage in both reusing and recycling.
