Saves energy and prevents pollution

Decreases greenhouse gas emission that contributes to global warming

Can help sustain the environment for future generations

A small effort to recycle can generate large returns for the environment, the economy and your community. Depending on the products your recycle and the value you might be able to earn some money in return for your recycling efforts (aluminum and steel are sometimes purchased by scrap yards).
