In Massachusetts there are 520 MILLION pounds of textiles that end up in the waste stream each year of which 95% can be recycled. The average elephant weighs about 6,000 pounds or 3 tons, which equates to 86,667 elephants that make the textile weight in the waste stream. Please help and recycle all your textiles at our Recycling Center.
A plastic bag from the grocery store takes between 500 and 1,000 years to decompose. Most grocers and large retailers now accept plastic bags, wrap and film for recycling. Look for a bin near the front of the store. Just by remembering to bring your own Eco-Friendly bag when you go shopping, you’ll be helping our environment in a very big way.
Recycling takes little effort on your part, for a big difference to our world.
