Prosperity poses potential problems when we don't recycle waste.
Alabama's Department of Environmental Management planned to reduce landfill waste by 25% over the past dozen years. Instead, it appears to have grown 50%.
Nationwide estimates show a 32% recycling rate.
Alabama estimates an 8% rate.
We can and need to do better.
Montgomery offers residential curbside recycling.
Take advantage of this service. It makes recycling as easy as possible - you just place your recyclables in an orange bag next to your trash container on trash day. A new replacement bag is left for you.
Some places - like Wetumpka - offer recycling centers. They are very helpful as well.
Landfills are finite. Do your part to keep them open.
