On America Recycles Day (November 15th), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognizes the importance and impact of recycling, which has contributed to American prosperity and the protection of the environment.

In America, the recycling rate has increased from less than 7% in 1960 to the current rate of over 35%. An EPA study found that every 10,000 tons of materials recycled supports nearly 16 jobs and $760,000 in wages.

Recycling is a major business nationwide, as waste management and remediation services earn over $100 billion annually. Additionally, the country’s 28,000 environmental engineers help minimize waste and pollution.
