Don't waste recycling opportunities
By Byron McNutt

LET’S BE HONEST. Americans are voracious consumers but they are lazy and indifferent when it comes to conserving the Earth’s precious natural resources.
Americans represent 5% of the world’s population, but generate 30% of the world’s garbage. U.S. waste disposal costs exceed $100 billion annually.
While it might seem our friends and neighbors do a good job sorting recyclables, we’re told that less than 2% of the total waste stream in the U.S. is recycled. There is plenty of room for improvement.
