For the past five years I’ve lived in a neighborhood that picks up recycle bins separate from trash. I’ve diligently followed the program by putting glass, plastic, paper & cans into the bin for weekly pickup. I’ve heard that it takes more energy to recycle most things than it does to produce it from scratch except for aluminum. Is this true? Should we stop recycling glass, paper & plastic? Should we continue to recycle glass, paper & plastic hoping that in the future it will be more efficient than making it from scratch?
