There are so many good reasons why we should recycle, and so many bad ones why we do not. The benefits of recycling are obvious:
– Reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators
Conserves natural resources such as timber, water and minerals
– Increases economic security by tapping a domestic source of materials
– Prevents pollution by reducing the need to collect new raw materials
– Saves energy
– Supports American manufacturing and conserves valuable resources
– Helps create jobs in the recycling and manufacturing industries in the United States
So why don’t more of us recycle?
The #1 answer to that question is convenience. Many cities don’t have curbside pickup. This means those who want to recycle must store and then transport materials to a recycling center. It’s a hassle, one that many of us just won’t do because its just “too hard” or “time-consuming”.
See a need – fill a need. For this reason, my partner, Monica Burroughs, and I have formed a new business, GreenWay Recycling, LLC – a residential curbside pickup service for all recyclable materials. We offer weekly pickup at your home, office or small business. Customers will be able to place their recyclable materials out by 7am every Wednesday of each week for pickup.
We will pick up almost everything that the recycling center accepts, with the exception of:
– motor oil
– oil filters
– bulky objects
*It is appreciated (but not required of) our customers to sort materials to be recycled. Please have all boxes broken down, and food containers rinsed. Anything that is not acceptable for recycling will be left behind in your bin, along with a written explanation.
We look forward to partnering with the community of Mason, TX to reduce the amount of materials placed in our landfill, while making recycling a more convenient experience!
