from recycled paper versus raw wood fibre.
- 30% less energy is used to make glass from recycled crushed glass versus new resources.
- A 33% energy reduction is seen when new products are made from recyclable plastics and 95% less energy is used to make new aluminum cans out of old ones.
- Recycling just one pop can saves enough energy to power a television for three hours.

Waste Diversion Task Force 2010 began to work on a 'made in Toronto' solution for waste diversion. -- by 2003 to reach rate of 30%.
-- by 2006 to reach rate of 60%.
-- by 2010 to reach rate of 100%. UNSUCCESSFUL At the moment our diversion rate is at 44%
and our new and revised goal is a 70%. http://www.toronto.ca/garbage/single/calendars/index.htm Compost Return it. It's worth it. You must be the
change you wish to
see in this world. Don't talk trash. Recycle it. If you don't choose to reuse,
our planet will lose!
