dotted line Why Recycle and What to Recycle

The City of Woodinville's Recycling Program helps Woodinville residents and businesses conserve natural resources by providing programs for reducing, reusing and recycling waste that would otherwise end up in landfills.

Waste reduction and recycling are environmentally responsible and generally cost-effective methods for reducing generated waste. The City offers special events throughout the year to make getting involved easy and fun!

Why Recycle?   from the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality

Save Natural Resources - By making products from recycled materials instead of virgin materials, we conserve land and reduce the need to drill for oil and dig for minerals.

Save Energy - It usually takes less energy to make recycled products; recycled aluminum, for example, takes 95% less energy than new aluminum from bauxite ore.

Save Clean Air and Water - In most cases, making products from recycled materials creates less air pollution and water pollution than making products from virgin materials.

Save Landfill Space - When the materials that you recycle go into new products, they don't go into landfills or incinerators, so landfill space is conserved.

Save Money and Creates Jobs - The recycling process creates far more jobs than landfills or incinerators, and recycling can frequently be the least expensive waste management method for cities and towns.
