Remember – Recycling helps Everyone! For you? It isn’t included in your “garbage bag” count (so it is FREE). For the Environment? It helps keep our landfill from filling up, it allows us to reduce our “Carbon Footprint”, it limits the amount of resources used (both in raw materials and in manufacturing), and it keeps the world a little bit cleaner!
