By the Numbers: Recycling
Americans use over 80 billion aluminum cans each year. There is no limit to the number of times each one can be recycled.
The average American uses seven trees a year in paper, wood, and other products made from trees.
In the U.S., 25 billion Styrofoam coffee cups are thrown away every year.
The energy saved from recycling one glass bottle, rather than manufacturing it from raw materials, can run a 100-watt light bulb for four hours or a compact fluorescent bulb for 20 hours.
Packing represents about 65 percent of household trash and makes up about one-third of an average dump.
