How does my town benefit fromsingle-stream recycling?
Every ton of disposables that your town recycles is a ton your town does not have to pay for to dispose as trash.Single-stream is helping us recover and re-use valuable materials: Some communities have increased their recyclingvolumes by as much as 100 percent within a year of beginning their single-stream programs.For more information about recycling, call your town or hauler or visitwww.crra.org.© CRRA 2009, 2010, 2011.
