COUNCIL RECYCLE Why Recycle? It is an easy way to help the environment. Each recycled item fewer resources are used to make new products and packaging. Savings from recycling in numbers Containers, paper and cardboard (for the year): • Filling more than 4,500 Olympic-sized swimming pools (over 11,000 megalitres of water). 4,500 x • Taking a little more than 64,000 cars off the road (386,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases). -64,000 cars Aluminium and Steel: • Save up to 75% of the energy and 40% of the water needed to make steel just using raw materials. Air pollution is reduced by almost 90%. -90% -75% 40% • Making new cans from aluminium used requires only 5% of the energy needed to make a new can from scratch. By recycling just six aluminium cans you can save enough energy to offset the carbon emissions from a 10 kilometre journey in an average size car, 17 kilometre bus ride or 25 kilometre train trip. 6 cam 10 km 25 km 17 km Glass: • By recycling one glass bottle you can save enough energy to use an average 30 watt household light globe for 13 hours. 13 HOURS Paper: • To make just one fonne of paper out of virgin material over 90,000 litres of precious water are used which will fill 450 rain barrels. 450x fonne Plastic: • Approximately 88% of the energy is saved by producing plastic from plastic as opposed to plastic from the raw materials of oil and gas. The energy saved by recycling one plastic drink bottle will power a computer for 25 minutes.
