Why Recycle?
Recycling takes goods out of the waste stream and puts them back in the market to be used over and over again.  This lessens the amount of waste going to the landfills.

Recycling makes sense!  It reduces the amount of natural resources used for new products by reusing resources already spent, while saving scarce landfill space.
