The amount of garbage produced by people has gotten out of hand. As more everyday items become disposable, more garbage is being made. Recycling offers the opportunity to reduce the amount of trash that ends up in landfills and waterways. While many municipalities offer, and some even mandate, recycling trash pick up, this is not enough. If you truly want to help reduce the amount of trash that ends up somewhere for centuries, or keep toxic chemicals from getting into the soil and water, you need to take advantage of drop off recycling services.
