Recycling Makes Sense!


Recycling is separating, collecting, marketing, processing and eventual return of useful items from waste to commerce. For an item to be considered recyclable the material must travel a complete cycle starting and ending with the consumer, turning materials that would otherwise become waste into valuable resources. Recycling glass bottles, aluminum cans, scrap metal, plastics and newspapers at a collection facility like ours is just the first link in a chain that generates a host of environmental and social benefits. When all the pieces are put together, recycling boosts the economy, conserves natural resources and reduces solid waste. There are numerous other benefits.

How Do I Recycle?


Does recycling require a lot of time and effort? NO! Reducing your waste by over 50% requires perhaps 3-4 minutes per day. The key to recycling is creating you own “home recycling center”.  Your home recycling center is a collection of sturdy, waterproof containers or bins for each recyclable item located in a convenient place.  Place in each container designated for the recyclable material as follows:


Glass Bottles & Jars:

Clean and rinse. Remove metal tops. Sort by color; green, brown, clear. World Market Recycling does NOT accept any plate glass, window glass, leaded glass or ceramics.


Seperate from other kinds of paper. Keep dry and clean.

Magazines, Junk Mail:

Seperate from other kinds of paper. Keep dry and clean.

White Copier/ Printer Paper:

Seperate from other kinds of paper. Keep dry and clean. Do not mix with colored paper.

Aluminum & Steel Cans:

Clean and rinse.

Scrap Metal:


Dry Corrugated Cardboard:

Keep dry and clean. Please flatten and remove any trash, paper or Styrofoam.

World Market Recycling does NOT accept cereal boxes, beer boxes or any other shiny cardboard.


Plastics are coded by the six most commonly used resins. Their number codes are located on the bottle or container within the recycling symbol. World Market Recycling acepts only TWO kinds of plastics which account for 70-90% of all plastics:


PETE- (Polyethylenen Terephthalate) The most common example is soft drink bottles. The number “1” will be stamped on the bottome of the containers.


HDPE- (High DEnsity Polyethylene) The most common example is milk jugs. The number “2” will be stamped on the bottom of these containers.

Raise awareness and get your elected officials more involved with our ecological crisis. For recycling to be effective it must be a joint venture between the individuals, business and government. The first step in your personal involvement is an investment in the future.
