Americans throw away enough office and writing paper each year to build a 12-foot-high wall that stretches from New York City to Los Angeles.

If all that paper were recycled, it could save 100 million tons of wood each year.

People in the U.S. throw away enough aluminum every three months to rebuild our entire commercial air fleet.

Aluminum takes 500 years to break down, but recycling one aluminum can saves enough electricity to run a TV for three hours.

Recycling in your building can help you earn Materials and Resources credits under the
LEED-O+M Rating System.

This credit is awarded for reducing waste and toxins generated by building occupants and building operations and taking that waste to landfills or for incineration.

Enhancing your program to include other recycled items — such as raw and mixed metals, plastics, batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, and plastics — can help with LEED credits as well.

And we can help you with the required documentation for the percentage of diverted/recycled total waste stream, which is 75%.
