Recycling & Why it’s Imperative

Recycling is an important portion of green living.  A lot of people are not sure what can be recycled and what can’t be recycled.  Well, if you live in the Western New York area, I’ve made it so easy for you! Just check the list below for your town’s  “Waste and Recycling Sites” to look up things like what can go in your recycling bin, what day is your town pickup and what kind of impact recycling can make for you and your town. Did you know that recycling is CHEAPER than dispensing garbage? Its true.  So why should you care about that? Cheaper for your town means less spending on garbage waste and more spending on programming and other services.  Need further convincing that recycling is cool?  Watch this!
