Hey! Recycling Ranger here to let you know that this month we have diverted over 5080 lbs (2.5 tons) of materials from the landfill!
According to the EPA, Americans generate trash at an astonishing rate of 4.6 pounds (2.1 kilograms) per day per person, which translates to 251 million tons per year.
What else is 2.5 tons you ask?
A humpback whale
The ROSAT satellite
Each block in the Pyramid of Giza
An Indian Rhino
The console of the world’s largest operational pipe organ
Check out the growth numbers:
January- 360 lbs
June- 1360 lbs

Tell your friends, co-workers and neighbors and help us grow that number even more!
