The MPCA study says recycling pumps billions of dollars into the Minnesota economy. The 60,000 jobs and the new products created from recycling are worth billions to Minnesotans. Products created from recycled materials are the most exciting! When you purchase products from recycled materials, you are closing the recycling loop.

What happens when you close the recycling loop? The first arrow

recycle, manufacture, purchaserepresents the first step of recycling, Collection of materials for recycling. Arrow two represents the manufacture of new products from the recyclables.  Arrow three is the purchase of the products made from recycled items. This is “Closing the loop” or a circular economy.  A win- win!

Why do we recycle? It saves valuable resources, keeps material from the landfills, reduces polluted landfills and as this report (below) shows produces economic opportunity and jobs!

The unfortunate thing is that so much still doesn’t get recycled.  So get serious and RECYCLE MORE!  Garbage is too valuable to waste!
