Benefits of Recycling

Recycling Makes a Difference

Act Now:

Environmental problems have become so complex that many individuals feel they can have no effect on them. Problems like global warming, hazardous waste, loss of rain forests, endangered species, acid rain, the ozone layer, and the municipal waste crisis can feel out of our control. At the very least, these problems require group and corporate action or government intervention.

But there are some things the individual can control. Our waste reduction and recycling activities can make a difference. That's why over 1,700 Pennsylvania communities recycle, over three times the number required to recycle by Act 101.

Recycling makes a difference.
It's the right thing to do.
