our commitment


The Algonquin Township is committed to recycling and following are some of the reasons why...

ENVIRONMENTAL reasons for recycling:
  • Saving Natural Resources - Saving trees and other natural resources is of vital importance. Recycling reduces and in some cases removes the demand for native and exotic timbers...in our own country and throughout the world.
  • Saving Landfill Space - Landfills are under pressure from increases in waste. We are running out of land to site these facilities. We believe everybody shares in our responsibility to reduce waste.
  • Reducing pollution and green house gases
  • Saving Energy
The ECONOMIC reasons for recycling:
  • Saves $$$ in waste disposal costs through reducing volume in the waste stream
  • Recycling services are designed to be very competitive when compared to the alternatives
  • Creates Employment
Recycling Commitment

Every ton of paper recycled saves up to 17 trees (depending on their size) not to mention the savings in the air and water pollution.
