Earth Calendar for July 8th and July 9th
Recycling conserves natural resources and energy, saves landfill space and reduces water pollution, air pollution and the greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming.
Recycling is an important way for individuals and businesses to reduce the waste they generate and reduce the negative impact of that waste. Because recycling is big business in Ohio, every time you recycle, it also supports the many companies and employees doing this important work. So reduce, reuse, recycle and buy recycled content products. Your efforts benefit our natural world and our economy.Ohio EPA and your local solid waste management district are responsible for implementing statewide waste reduction, recycling, recycling market development and litter prevention programs. An important part of this duty is implementing Ohio's Solid Waste Management Plan and encouraging Ohioans to reduce waste, recycle materials and buy recycled-content products. Find out what you can you do to help keep Ohio beautiful by visiting the website.
