Recycling at Work

Recycling can save companies money by reducing the cost of garbage disposal. While recycling service usually costs extra money, recycling is still cheaper per ton than garbage service.

Recycling is good for a diversified economy. For example, on a per-ton basis, for every job created at a landfill, recycling sustains 10 more jobs just through sorting alone (Institute for Local Self-Reliance, 1999). Also, recycling provides manufacturers with material to incorporate into new products.
