Fun Recycling Facts

  • Stop Junk Mail - If you saved up all the unwanted junk mail for one year you would have the equivalent to one and one half trees, which would add up to over 100 millions trees every year in the U.S. alone. To help stop junk mail, write to:

    Mail Preference Service, Direct Marketing Association
    11 West 42nd St.
    P.O. Box 3861
    New York, NY 10163-3861.

    By writing to them you can reduce junk mail by up to 75%. You can recycle the rest of the junk mail you receive.
  • Instead of throwing away items such as furniture, appliances, and clothing, look for a place to donate them.
  • Keep used paper in a stack and use the flip side for scrap work.
  • Grocery shopping... plastic vs. paper bags? Neither! Here is what you can do: if your purchase is small, don’t use any bag. This alone could save hundreds of millions of bags per year. Or for larger shopping, use cloth bags
  • Change your kitchen habits... Use reusable containers for food storage instead of wrapping food in foil or plastic wrap. Wipe up spills with rags, not paper towels.
  • Not only should you recycle, but buy products that are recycled. By purchasing these products you are helping to conserve natural resources and protect the environment for our and future generations.
