Why should I recycle?
Recycling helps keep city waste disposal costs low; conserves resources for future generations, reduces the need to build new landfills, and saves energy by turning throw-away trash into new materials for new products. For every ton of recyclables collected and delivered to SOCRRA, the city earns $20 per ton, whereas the city pays to dispose of trash. Last year the city collected $165,000 from recycling revenue, and avoided $100,000 in disposal costs.
