Recycling makes sense. The concept is simple: recycling turns materials that would otherwise become waste into valuable resources. Collecting used bottles, cans and newspapers and taking them to the curb or to a collection facility is just the first in a chain of events that generates a host of financial, environmental, and social returns. Some of these benefits accrue locally as well as globally. When all the pieces of recycling are put together, the overwhelming conclusion is that recycling boosts the economy, conserves natural resources, and reduces solid waste.
So please, remember to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle for all of Prince George County.
