ACT Today now recycles consumable products with more projects forthcoming. Proceeds from these recycling programs provide grants for families impacted by autism. Did you know that recycling in commercial businesses is so important because commercial waste makes up about 40% of total municipal waste in America today? Ordinary individuals like you and me in the United States will send the equivalent of 4.5 pounds of trash into are landfills each day and approximately 9% – 12% of these materials are made of plastics.
Business and industry operations generate recyclable materials in many areas, such as offices, cafeterias, supply stores, shipping or warehouse departments, print shops and production areas. In fact, many companies are already enthusiastically collecting recycled materials in high-profile programs, while others are just beginning. Collecting recycled materials can cost money, but it also saves money by reducing the volume of waste that must be disposed.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the best place to start making a difference is right in your own home. Individuals can do their part and reduce, reuse, and recycle materials to decrease household waste.
