Recycle the basics

Tucson Recycles

If everyone would simply separate the paper, plastic, glass and aluminum products from the trash and tossed them is a recycling bin, we could decrease the amount of waste sent to landfills by 75% . Currently it takes the area the size of Pennsylvania to dump all our waste.
