With so many misconceptions about recycling swirling around, a little knowledge can go a long way towards helping you make wise decisions about how to dispose of your trash. If you didn’t know the truth behind all these myths it would be easy to think that recycling wasn’t worth our time, effort, or money but that could not be farther from the truth. While it certainly isn’t a perfect solution to dealing with our trash problem, recycling is an important part of our long-term sustainability strategy. Simply put, the pros of recycling outweigh the cons in almost all situations.

We hope that this article has helped to clear up some of the misconceptions about the costs and benefits of recycling. Remember that while recycling is generally better than not recycling, it isn’t the only way to reduce your ecological footprint.

Reducing the amount of products you buy and reusing the ones that you already own are also great ways to have a positive impact on our environment!
