What state does the best job getting rid of their waste?



  1. 0 Votes

    Recycling is the best way of efficiently and sustainably getting rid of waste. In an article published by public works magazine, Oregon has the highest recycling rate in America with around 46% of wates being recycled. In 2009, however, San Francisco, CA, became the city with the highest recycling rate in the country (72%!).  While numbers are continuously changing, what does seem to remain constant is that, in general terms, western states tend to lead as far as recycling rates, followed by the mid-Atlantic, and the Great Lakes region.

    San Francisco’s 72% recycling rate is a lie.  The rate is high because the construction industry does a great job of recycling.  Residential recycling is about 25%!!!
