STATE RECYCLING

Why Nebraska Recycles

It takes less energy to create new items from recycled materials than it does to create new products from raw materials. Mining minerals and milling trees into lumber requires vast amounts of energy. Recycling allows us to reuse materials many times to conserve natural resources while creating the products we use in our everyday lives.

Benefits of Recycling

  • Conserves resources for our children's future
  • Prevents emissions of many greenhouse gases and water pollutants
  • Saves energy
  • Supplies valuable raw materiels to industry
  • Creates jobs
  • Stimulates the development of greener technologies
  • Reduces the need for new landfills and incinerators
