The recycling movement has taken off in recent years, as information on environmental protection and recycling has become more widespread. In fact, regardless of whether or not you recycle, we are sure you have heard many times from many different sources that “recycling is important.”

At Brazos Valley Trash Valet & Recycling, we believe that recycling is something that everyone knows is important but perhaps not enough people know what actions they can take. For this reason, we would like to share information regarding recycling resources and how to find them.

Helpful Tools

Various organizations offer many online tools and guides that are explicitly designed to help educate the public about the importance of recycling and the positive impact we can make on the environment. Additionally, there are resources out there to help you find recycling facilities near you.

Recycling Education

Recycling Facility Locator

Recycling isn’t limited to simply melting things down and reusing them. To learn about other ways to find a purpose for your used materials, check out the U.S. Waste Exchanges website.

Final Thoughts

With the Christmas season just around the corner, we are expecting a greatly increased amount of plastic and paper waste from all of the gift unwrapping and package opening. That being said, now is a great time to consider joining the recycling movement if you haven’t already! Many people tend to believe that their recycling contribution is negligible in the grand scheme of things. However, keep in mind that the ever-growing recycling movement is made up of individual people on its most basic level. Your contribution matters!
