Environmental Home Remodeling: Recycling and Composting

This article was recommended by Carlisle School 5th grader Sarah Mathews who is recycling and composting in Carlisle

In the United States, approximately 70% of everyday waste is recyclable. Of this 70%, Americans only recycle about 30%. This means that more than half of the waste that could be recycled in one way or another is instead ending up in landfills across the country. Landfills are quickly becoming overfilled with waste that cannot simply disintegrate in the landfill within our lifetimes. One plastic water bottle, for instance, takes around 450 years to disintegrate.
