One person’s recycled goods are another person’s treasure. If you aren’t into recycling, you’re missing out not only on the environmental benefits it offers but possible perks for your own finances.
PCS Debt Relief shares 5 ways you can make recycling advantageous for you and the rest of the world:
Get Cash for Recycled Goods
Of course you care about the environment. But we know you also care about the immediate benefits recycling may have for you. Most state and city-run governments have recycling programs that offer cash to people who bring in glass and plastic bottles, as well as aluminum cans to recycling centers. Recycling isn’t just for teens who want to make some extra side money – you can surely make the most of your recyclables as well!
Don’t Refuse to Reuse
Getting cash for old bottles isn’t the only way you can put a little green in your wallet. Reusing jars and plastic containers is a great way to save on general household items. You can also opt to use refillable glass bottles for your soaps and shampoos and steel canteens for your to-go beverages.
You can also recycle your clothing items. Shopping for ‘staple’ wardrobe clothing pieces that you can mix and match and wear repeatedly will help you reduce the overall amount of clothing you buy.
Generate Energy Savings
While the energy savings created by recycling efforts may not directly impact your finances, you’d be helping reduce overall energy consumption. Did you know that one aluminum can may generate enough power to keep a TV on for three hours? Or that the simple act of recycling may save more than 90% of freshwater used for mining and manufacturing? Recycling doesn’t just save the planet; it also saves precious time.
Lower Cost of Waste Disposal
What if you could lower the amount you pay on your waste management fees? The more you recycle things that you might otherwise throw into the garbage (i.e. cans, paper, glass bottles, etc.), the more you pay because you’re generating more waste. But if you recycle items that really should be recycled, you’ll have less to put in your trash bins. Consider negotiating a lower rate with your waste management service provider.
If you’re a small business owner, you appreciate the effort many employers go through to create job opportunities for hardworking people. By boosting your recycling efforts, less recycled goods will end up in landfills. By doing this, you’ll be helping to create jobs for skilled workers to re-manufacture new goods out of recycled materials.
