With several cuts being made to the budget for environmental needs within Lubbock, there is no better time than now to begin helping. Even with these cuts being made, this doesn’t mean that this is the end. With the help of the people of Lubbock, we can help to keep our city clean and healthy. 123 Recycling offers a variety of different packages at reasonable prices so that all families can help with waste management. Consider some of these things below… the impact of recycling can be great!

 

 

Recycling one ton of paper is the equivalent of 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, 3 cubic yards of trash, 4000 kW of electricity and 7000 gallons of water. These amounts are for paper; imagine how much waste we can reduce from other recyclable materials such as metals and plastics?

 For example, every three months, Americans throw enough aluminum in the landfills to build our nation’s entire commercial air fleet. Knowing something such as this could really make you think every time you open a soda or cover a plate with aluminum!
