5. And today is America Recycles Day!  Here are some fun facts from the Town of Dedham:

  • The number of cans recycled every 30 seconds equals the number of people who could fill an entire pro football stadium.
  • A glass container can go from recycling bin to a store shelf in as few as 30 days.
  • Recycling one aluminum can saves the energy needed to operate a 46-inch LED TV for 3 hours.
  • Did you know that shampoo and mouthwash bottles are recyclable? Even the cardboard roll from toilet paper can be recycled!
  • Plastic bags are recyclable, but not at the curb. However, many retailers across the country have drop-off collections for plastic bag recycling. Other bags that can be recycled are:  dry-cleaning bags, bread bags and newspaper bags.
  • Did you know in most communities you don’t need to remove the cap from your PET bottle before you recycle it? The plastic cap is recyclable, too.
