How long have we been recycling in America?

    Interesting question.  According to the first instance of recycling in America came in 1776 when a statue of King George III was melted down to make bullets (42,088 of them).

    In modern times the first major aluminum recycling centers were opened in 1904 in Chicago and Cleveland.

    There is a really nice history of recycling list at this website, check it out for more of the history.
