RECYCLING INFO

Recycling is everyone's responsibility. When you shop, look for recycled content somewhere on the product you are purchasing, whether it's on the packaging or on the product itself. Simply putting your milk jugs and soda bottles in your bin and putting it on the curb isn't enough. As consumers we must be more pro-active in asking for/requesting more products with recycled content. Manufacturers have little incentive to use recycled plastics when virgin resin could be acquired, in some cases, almost as cheaply as recycled plastics. We have come a long way in the recycling world since I first began in this industry. But there is still a long way to go. Changes are always happening. Progress is never as fast as we like. Let's all do our part to make this planet a healthier, greener one!
