Why is it important to recycle?

There are many reasons. Recycling is one way to keep waste out of landfills. Landfills are places to dump waste. But they are unpopular because they can pollute the soil used to cover them, and that's bad for people who may build new aluminum and paper. Finally, recycling can leave a lower garbage bill. Recycling lowers the amount of waste put into landfills. Therefore, less money is spent for garbage disposal.

How has recycling changed over the years?

10 or 20 years ago, you could buy milk in returnable, refillable glass bottles, and many people recycled voluntarily. Now you buy milk and other products in plastic bottles or paper containers. Because of the high cost of disposing of theses things in landfills, many city governments now have recycling programs.

How dose recycling help the environment?

Recycling helps the environment mainly by saving energy. For example, it takes 95% less energy to produce aluminum than to produce new aluminum.

Can one person really make a difference? If only a few people recycle, then what's the point?

If not you, then who? If we combine our efforts, we can make a difference. Each of us contributes to the waste problem. All the millions of tons of waste that go into landfills started as an old pair of slippers, a broken TV set or a used magazine that came from somebody's house-----maybe yours!
