Why Recycle?

Each resident of Marion generates an average of 4 lbs. of waste every day. In one year, this totals 50.5 million lbs. As the amount of trash being thrown away each year increases, the cost to collect it, haul it, and landfill it also increases. Recycling is the best way to reduce waste, stretch our resources and maintain a reasonable refuse collection rate.
