Why Recycle?

The benefits of recycling range from improving your bottom line to conserving natural resources and reducing pollution.

Save Money

Reducing waste can lower the number of garbage pick-ups or reduce the size of your waste container. These changes can translate into real cost savings for your business.

Conserve Resources

Recycling makes it possible to create products from used paper, plastic, or metals instead of using raw materials. This process reduces pollution, conserves landfill space, and decreases the need for mining, logging, and drilling for natural resources.

Create Good Jobs and Boost the Local Economy

The recycling industry has a total economic impact of 169,000 jobs and $6 billion in annual wages, just in the state of Ohio. Since the average wage paid in the recycling industry is $8,000 more than the state’s average, recycling means good jobs for people in Ohio.
