how many cubic yards of landfill space are saved when 9 million pounds are properly recycled?

    It depends what type of material; however, recycling 2000 pounds of newspaper saves 3 cubic meters of landfill. By this same math, recycling 9 million pounds of newspaper would save about 13,500 cubic meters.  However, different materials take up different spaces; I am not sure how plastic would compare, or other recyclable materials.
