If you're a frequent reader of our blog, you know we like to include interesting recycling tidbits in our posts, like the fact that you can recycle an aluminum can, and after only 60 days, it will be back on a store shelf. Or for every ton of mixed paper that is recycled, 17 trees are saved. In this post, we wanted to focus on the 'full picture' of recycling, so we created an infographic that details the series of events that occur during the life cycle of your recyclable materials - from generation, to consumption, to turning the recyclables back into new products. Let us know what you think in the comments below and please share with your colleagues who would be interested in learning more about this!





Let's get the conversation started on how to drive recycling and cost savings for your business.
