Remember; Reduce, reuse and recycle.
1 ) Recycling 1 tonne of Aluminium saves extracting 4 tonnes of bauxite.
2 ) Making new steel from old scrap steel offers up to a 75% energy saving.
3 ) Each tonne of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, 4000Kw of energy and 7000 gallons of water.
4 ) Incinerating 1 tonne of waste creates one job. Send the same amount to landfill creates 6 jobs. Recycling the same amount creates 36 jobs.
5 ) Glass takes up to 4000 years to decompose in landfill yet can be recycled indefinitely.
6 ) Each year, the average bin contains enough unrealised energy for 500 baths, 3500 showers, or 5000 hours of television.
7 ) Recycling 1 aluminum can saves enough energy to power your iPod long enough to listen to one whole album. Recycling 100 cans would light the average bedroom for two whole weeks.
8 ) The energy saved by recycling one glass bottle will power a 100 watt light bulb for almost an hour.
