American cities, consumer goods companies, and retailers are facing a financial and environmental crisis: we are currently spending billions of dollars to landfill products and packaging when, instead, they could be sold to the recycling industry. These valuable commodities could be recycled, drive costs efficiency, and create jobs. There are many benefits to recycling including the reduction in manufacturing costs for consumer goods, reduction in landfill disposal costs, increased revenue for municipalities, and creation of local jobs.
