Congratulations Green Township residents! In 2016 we recycled 859.80 tons of metal, glass, plastic and paper. Residents saved resources, conserved energy, and reduced pollution by recycling.
The recycling efforts in Green Township:
- Conserved enough energy to power every home in Green Township for 5 days.
- Reduced more air pollution than if every household in Green Township rode their bicycle to work for 3 weeks.
- Saved 14,910 trees from being harvested.
Recycling reduces pollution so the air we breathe is cleaner, conserves natural resources so we will have them to use in the future, and decreases the energy needed to make new products. Recycling also boosts our local economy by creating 169,000 jobs (4.3% of all jobs) just in the State of Ohio.
