VA Green Routine recognizes recycling as a major component of how we will green VA. America Recycles Day — http://www.americarecyclesday.org/ — TODAY November 15th.

Here are the top reasons from the National Recycling Coalition why you should redouble your recycling efforts today and everyday:

1. Recycling is good for the economy – American companies rely on recycling programs to provide the raw materials they need to make new products. 2) Recycling creates jobs – Recycling in the U.S. is a $236 billion a year industry. More than 56,000 recycling and reuse enterprises employ 1.1 million workers nationwide. 3) Recycling reduces waste. The average American discards 4.5 pounds of garbage every day; most of which goes into landfills, where it’s compacted and buried. To find out where you can recycle all kinds of products (batteries, carpet, paint, etc.) visit www.earth911.com. Brought to you by the VA Green Management Program (www.green.va.gov) and the Green Routine (www.va.gov/greenroutine).
