Recycling jobs site debuts
Recycling is a major economic development tool as well as an environmental industry. Reuse, recycling, and waste reduction offer direct development opportunities for communities. When collected with skill and care, and upgraded with quality in mind, discarded materials are a local resource that can contribute to local revenue, job creation, business expansion, and the local economic base. Now there is a new site for recycling jobs.
Recycling-based economic development is the heart of the Waste to Wealth program. For three decades, local communities haveprovided technical assistance linking reuse and recycling within the local community and have documented the job creation and value added benefits of reuse and recycling.
On a per-ton basis, sorting and processing recyclables alone sustain 10 times more jobs than landfilling or incineration. However, making new products from the old offers the largest economic pay-off in the recycling loop. New recycling-based manufacturers employ even more people and at higher wages than does sorting recyclables. Some recycling-based paper mills and plastic product manufacturers, for instance, employ on a per-ton basis 60 times more workers than do landfills.
