As the earth's population grows, we are increasingly aware of the earth's finite amount of resources. Therefore, recycling those materials means using less raw materials.
Benefits of Recycling
Aside from the benefits to the environment and the conservation of resources, there are direct financial benefits to the City and its residents. By recycling more, the City will pay less in refuse tipping fees to the landfills, because less waste is being hauled away and dumped in the landfills. By the City paying less in tipping fees, city residents will ultimately pay less over time in their trash fees and refuse rates can remain the same.
Recycling Statistics Within the City
Springboro residents recycle approximately 1,130 tons of materials each year, or 13.9% of all waste that is collected within the City. However, the national average for recycling in communities is approximately 32.5% of all waste collected - so, there is room for improvement!
