Why recycle?

When you recycle, your unwanted items go on to a new useful life.  The items that our community recycles are raw materials that can be used to create new products and packaging.  Your cans may become new cans, bicycles or even car parts.  Paper fibres can be recycled into tissue and egg cartons(not foam) and plastic bottles may turn up as a fleece jacket or beautiful carpet.
