  2. Did you know? The EPA estimates that 75% of the American waste stream is recyclable, but we only recycle about 30% of it. www.junkhappens.com

  3. Why Recycling? It’s estimated that 90% of what we throw away could be recovered through reuse, recycling or composting. Recycling is easy and it conserves important raw materials and protects natural habitats for the future. www.junkhappens.com

  4. Reduce the Size of Landfills As there is a rapid growth in population, it will become difficult for the landfills to hold so much trash. This leads to heavy pollution and causes major health problems. By recycling materials, we can reduce the amount of materials going into the landfills and reduce the strain on our environment. www.junkhappens.com

  5. Reduces Greenhouse Gas Emissions When certain products are thrown into the landfill or burnt they may emit greenhouse gases, which are responsible for global warming. But, recycling such products decreases the amount of greenhouse gases released into the environment and prevents water and air pollution. www.junkhappens.com
