Recycling Myths- #1

by admin on December 6, 2007

It’s OK to throw something away as long as it’s biodegradable.

NosireeBob. Biodegradable waste breaks down into methane in the landfill. It is usually released into the atmosphere, where it is a potent greenhouse gas. A better solution is to recycle the material, or even better, reuse it or reduce its use altogether. Non-biodegradable waste does not produce methane, but it also will not break down in the landfill, thus using more space.
