Why Recycling is Important in Illinois

please recycle signThere are many reasons why recycling is important in Illinois. One of the most well-known and important reasons why is to save valuable natural resources. Many old and even broken electronics that are thrown away have the potential to be reused in one way or another.

Besides being able to get more use out of these valuable natural resources, the more that is reused means the less that is manufactured. Also, another reason why recycling is important in Illinois is to help stop useless waste. We not only want to put less into landfills, but we also want to try to prevent as much environmental damage as we can. Electronics can contain hazardous substances that are harmful to the environment. There are even state and national electronics recycling regulations in place to help prevent this environmental damage.
