RECYCLING SAVES Resources Energy Jobs Money 56 www.nAPAVA L L E Y L I F Emagaz ine. c om Recycling protects the environment and reduces the need to extract virgin materials, including oil — recycling one ton of plastic saves the equivalent of nearly 4 barrels of oil. Last year, over 120,000 tons of materials were recycled or composted at the Napa Recycling & Composting Facility. By keeping these valuable resources out of the landfill, we significantly decreased carbon dioxide and methane emissions and saved enough energy to power all the houses in Napa for three months!

And, for every ton of material that is recycled, instead of wasted in incinerators and landfills, 10 times more jobs are created in recycling sorting, and 25 times more jobs are created in recycling manufacturing. Recycling and yardwaste collection is free with your service, and your monthly rate is determined by the size of your garbage container.
