Recycling Saves Water

In this time of drought, it’s important to remember yet another positive benefit of recycling and composting.

We save 3.5 gallons of water with every pound of paper we recycle – Every 4 pounds of paper recycled saves enough water for a nice refreshing shower!

A quick rinse is all that’s needed – Containers should be empty of solid and liquid contents, but do not need to be pristine in order to be recycled.
