Recycling, why is it important?

Georgia Allen, Balfour Beatty lifeworks coordinator, and Diane Wulf, 92nd Civil Engineer Squadron pollution prevention program manager, talk about a recycling brochure during National Recycling Day Nov. 15, 2016, at Fairchild Air Force Base, Wash. Recycling is more than just separating paper out of the trash can and into the iconic “blue bin.” Recycling is about conserving natural resources and buying those recycled items back. “After items are put into the blue bin, they are delivered to a recycling facility and some recyclables are sold off to a manufacturer to be made into something new,” said Wulf.
