The following is some facts from Headwater Cooperative Recycling—a non-profit organization and the largest recycling cooperative in the United States:
Product packaging accounts for 1/3 of our trash
Plastics require 100-400 years to break down in a landfill
Producing new plastic from recycled material uses only two-thirds of the energy required to manufacture it from raw materials
Recycling 1 ton of plastic can save 1-2 thousand gallons of gas
As much as 40% of selected plastic parts from damaged or discarded cars are repaired and reused
Every year we make enough plastic film to shrink-wrap the state of Texas
Over 1.5 billion pounds of post-consumer plastic bottles were recycled during 1999, accounting for 22% (by weight) of all plastic bottles produced in the U.S.
95% of all plastic bottles in the U.S. market are manufactured from PET (soda & water bottles) or HDPE (milk & laundry detergent)
- 56% of recycled PET finds a market in the manufacture of fiber (carpet & clothing)
- 29% of HDPE recycled bottles go into making new bottles
We at Crucial Vacuum hope you understand the importance of recycling – we certainly do, now it’s your turn to give back to the environment.
