Be kind to the earth by recycling paper, plastic, glass, aluminum, steel and more. By doing so, you'll help reduce the millions of tons of waste sent to landfills every year. But that's not all. Recycling can save up to 95 percent of the energy it takes to produce new goods from these materials, and in 2005, recycling prevented the release of 79 million tons of carbon into the air. Communities have many resources for recycling, including curbside pickup programs in some areas. Find out what's available and exactly what you can and cannot recycle locally. Recycling is easy once you get into the habit. Simply create a separate bin next to your trash can, and think before you throw!
