The Importance of Recycling

In fact, the country’s current recycling rate is around 30% of its waste stream. At Mitrano Removal, we think that the U.S. can do better. This is why we go to such lengths in order to make sure that we recycle as much as possible. Using recycled materials lessens space at our country’s already strained landfills, keeps building material prices lower, strengthens our supply of natural resources, and adds to a healthier ecosystem for our planet.

Recycling also conserves energy, reduces greenhouse gases, and reduces water and air pollution. In what ways does recycling save energy? The San Diego Office of Education has concluded that recycling just one glass bottle saves enough energy to keep a 100 watt light bulb lit for four hours! Using one ton of recycled computer and office paper can save around 3,000 kilowatt hours over the same ton of traditionally produced paper. The Steel Recycling Institute found that enough energy is saved by steel recycling to power the equivalent of 18 million homes for one year!

Proper recycling is the most responsible thing any of us can do these days, and Mitrano Removal has been doing it for over twenty years!
