FACT 1: The four-foot stack of newspapers when recycled will save a 40-foot fir tree from felling.
FACT 2: The recycled glass bottle will store sufficient energy to light a 100 watt light bulb for a period of four hours.
FACT 3: The can that is made from recycled aluminum will store about 95 percent of the energy necessary to produce cans from virgin material.
FACT 4: Â The aluminum disposed of by Americans would construct an entire commercial airline fleet once every three months.
FACT 5: The recycling process at the University of Colorado has stopped the felling of around 235,000 fir trees. The recycling process has protected 415,000 gallons of gasoline, 843,000 pounds of air pollutants, 67,500 cubic yards of landfill waste, 98 million gallons of water, and 65million kilowatt hours of electricity since the year 1980.
FACT 6: Re-manufacturing the recycled materials already refined and processed will consume less energy than the first time.
FACT 7: The scarce natural resources of the world are conserved by the recycling process as the usage of recycled material will save the new resources of minerals, oil, trees, raw materials taken from the Earth, and metal ores. The pressure to perform cutting and mining operations in the forests will be reduced by the conservation.
FACT 8: It is estimated that about 90,000 pounds of trash is left by each American adult for their children. The wastes left over at home like; cardboard, metal, newsprint, and glass can be recycled to diminish the carbon dioxide emissions by 850 pounds a year.

FACT 10: In the current decade, it is predicted that Americans will throw away 11 million tons of glass bottles and jars, 1 million tons of aluminum cans and foil, 10 million tons of newspaper, and 4 and one-half million tons of office paper. All of this waste that is disposed of can be recycled.
