Why Recycle?

Recycling helps protect your health as well as the environment!

Recycling reduces air and water pollution!

Recycling reduces greenhouse gas emissions!

Recycling saves ENERGY

Recycling conserves precious natural resources, since less raw material is needed to be extracted and processed!

Small businesses matter! Research has indicated that nationwide, offices with fewer than 50 employees generate nearly 40% of discarded printing and writing paper!

According to the Environmental Defense Fund, the average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of paper each year - and the effects of producing and not recycling all that paper really adds up!
