Happy Earth Day

Why should you reduce, reuse, recycle, and compost?

  • Save money and conserve resources
  • Protect groundwater, air quality, wildlife habitat, and prevent greenhouse gas pollution
  • Recycling creates an average of nine times more jobs than landfill. Composting creates at least twice as many and Reuse creates as many as 30 times more jobs than landfills.
  •  Composting reduces food waste in the landfill and improves soil health.
  • The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries reported an economic impact of $495,182,700 in 2021 for Nebraska.

This Earth Day, please consider how you can further reduce your waste! And of course, reach out to NRC if you have any questions.
