Recycle Butte
Recycling is more than extending the life of our landfill.  It is about making the best use of the resources we have available and preserving those resources for future generations.  It is about conserving water, energy, land and materials.  It is about creating a sustainable community that values what we have and what future generations deserve to have.  When you bury something in the landfill, it's like burying the energy and water it took to create that product.
