Newspapers are the number one recyclable resource on the planet. Most every city has some form of recycling and by taking advantage of these recycling programs, some cities offer rebates for certain services that is provided by the city. Every newspaper that gets recycled is one less tree that is cut down to make the newspaper. Newspapers, magazines, phone books and catalogs are the most overlooked recyclable materials and the make up of nearly 25% of landfill materials.

Step 2

Aluminum cans are a profitable recycling resource. Aluminum is a precious metal and can be recycled many times. Cans are not the only source of aluminum that can be recycled, some automobile motors are largely made up of aluminum. More aluminum ends up in landfills than is recycled.

Step 3

Plastic is a product of an oil based substance and can only be recycled a certain amount of times. If you buy products that come in recycle plastic you may find a triangle on it somewhere that states how many times the plastic has already been recycled.
