    The Energy Information Administration (EIA) is an independent statistics and analysis agency within the United States of America Department of Energy. The EIA provides “policy-neutral data, forecasts, and analyses to promote sound policy making, efficient markets, and public understanding regarding energy and its interaction with the economy and the environment.”

    The EIA’s Web site does not specifically mention how much energy is used in recycling centers annually across the nation, however it does provide some examples of how much energy recycling saves.

    According to the EIA Web site, by using recycled aluminum scraps, you use 95 percent less energy than you would if you made the cans from bauxite ore. Bauxite Ore is the raw material that is used when making aluminum cans.

    Also you can save up to 17 tress and use 50 percent less water, when making a ton of paper from recycled paper, according to the EIA.
