  Why Recycle??
    Recycling may require a few extra minutes and conscious commitment.  However, by recycling, the negative impacts on the environment can be minimized and promote a safer and more sustainable community. 
    Recycling conserves energy and our natural resources, saves landfill space, as well as reduces water and air pollution.  As environmental awareness increases, recycling increases in relevance.
    The common montra Reduce, Reuse, Recycle combined with purchasing recycled products comprise a comprehensive waste and resource reduction strategy that benefits our natural world.  For every 1,000 tons of recycled material, 15 jobs are created as compared to less than one job created by land filling the material.
    The US Environmental Protection Agency estimates that 70% of the waste Americans produce could be recycled.
    The Morgan County Health Department has dedicated a section of our website for information and education to help you with your recycling efforts.
    Recycling is a very important part of our countys waste management.  Click on the page at the left for more information about recycling opportunities in Morgan County.
