Earth Angel Update

 

For every ton of newspaper recycled we save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, and 7,000 gallons of water. Our Earth Angel program recycled 2.12 tons of newspaper last week alone. That is approximately 36 trees, 806 gallons of oil, 6 cubic yards of landfill space and 14,840 gallons of water saved.
