Cleves Residents Recycled 31.13 Tons in 2015
Congratulations Cleves residents! In 2015, we recycled 31.13 tons of metal, glass, plastic and paper. Residents saved resources, conserved energy, and reduced pollution by recycling.
The recycling efforts in Cleves:
- Conserved enough energy to power every home in Cleves for 2 days.
- Reduced more air pollution than if every household in Cleves rode their bicycle to work for 1 week.
- Saved 261 trees from being harvested.
Recycling reduces pollution so the air we breathe is cleaner; conserves natural resources so we will have them to use in the future; and decreases the energy needed to make new products. Recycling also boosts our local economy by creating 169,000 jobs (4.3% of all jobs) just in the State of Ohio.
On average, each household in Cleves recycled 65 pounds in 2015. That’s 2.21% of all the waste we generate.
