Recycling Today's Hope For Tomorrow

The facts on why Recycling makes sense for you

Landfilling is Not A Sustainable Planning Approach

Landfills are the largest origin of human-caused methane, a greenhouse gas that is 21 times more powerful than carbon dioxide. The Global Protection agencies admit all landfill liners will eventually leak and their toxic leachate, or garbage juice, can seep into and contaminate soil and groundwater supplies. We are not there yet, but you got to admit. IT IS ALARMING

Papers are recycled into paper. They can be recycled up to 7 times

Recycling Saves Energy

By recycling about 30% of our waste, India can save billions of tonnes of coal for thermal power generation, therefore, reducing greenhouse emissions. For perspective imagine taking away close to 25 millions car off the road.

Recycling Prevents Pollution

When we recycle materials instead of virgin materials during manufacturing, we avoid the environmental damage caused by mining for materials, drilling for petroleum, and harvesting trees. 

Recycling Creates Jobs

There are 25 jobs in recycling-based manufacturing in comparison to 10 jobs in recycling processing and 1 job at the landfill. The recycling industry employs more workers than the auto industry.

Recycling Saves Money

Selling recyclable materials offsets the extra cost of collection and processing recyclables, making recycling the cheaper option for the community. 

It is estimated that Recyclables saves around 65% of material cost.
