How has recycling been used to help our economy?

    Just sorting and processing materials destined for recycling creates ten times the number of jobs that would be required to simply take waste material to the landfill.  When you think about it, it makes sense that recycling creates more jobs than throwing recyclables in the garbage; it takes a lot more work to sort materials and prepare them to be melted down and made into something new than it takes just to haul a truckload of trash to the landfill.  As just one example of how recycling can be used to create jobs at the state and local level, California’s goal of recycling 50% of its waste is expected to create approximately 45,000 new jobs in the state.  Recycling surely is a good deal for both the environment and the economy.
