Plymouth residents are active recyclers. The average household places nearly 50 pounds of recyclables at the curb each month. This is good for both the economy and the environment.
When Plymouth residents and businesses recycle, they:
- Reduce pollution and conserve natural resources;
- Save energy by reducing the need to extract and process raw materials;
- Reduce greenhouse gases;
- Help stimulate the development of greener technologies; and
- Avoid the cost of waste disposal in landfills and incinerators.
