Recycling Facts

It takes half a barrel of crude oil to produce the rubber for just one truck tire.

One gallon of used motor oil can contaminate 1 million gallons of water.

The junk mail Americans receive in one day could produce enough energy to heat 250,000 homes.

The steel industry's annual recycling saves the equivalent energy to electrically power about 18 million households for a year. Every time a ton of steel is recycled, 2500 pounds of iron ore, 1000 pounds of coal and 40 pounds of limestone is preserved.

Every day Americans use enough steel and tin cans to make a steel pipe running from Los Angeles to New York... and back. If we only recycle one-tenth of the cans we now throw away, we'd save about 3.2 billion of them every year.
