Breitbart News has a new report that shows that California is actually recycling $7 billion worth of trash every year!
The report was released in collaboration with the California Environmental Quality Agency and Waste Recycle California, a nonprofit that advocates for recycling and composting.
California is currently the nation’s fourth largest waste recycling state.
As Breitbart News reported last month, the state is responsible for almost a quarter of all the trash thrown away in the U.S. every year.
Waste Recrycling California President Tom O’Leary told Breitbart News that the California Waste Conservation Act of 2007, which created the California Recycle Program, is the first step to recovering the $7.4 billion that was lost to the state’s waste stream in 2011.
O’Brien told Breitbart that California has a “real opportunity” to make a significant impact on our nation’s waste streams and, hopefully, on the state and our economy.
He said the bill, which passed in 2011, was meant to allow California to recycle the waste it already generates, but it was also designed to “reduce California’s dependence on foreign sources of raw materials.”
O’Reilly, who has previously stated that recycling is a “gift from God” and that “every trash can be turned into a garden,” told Breitbart on Tuesday that California’s waste recycling program is “an incredibly powerful, effective, and very efficient tool for helping us to keep our waste out of landfills.”
The state collects and recycles approximately 75 percent of its waste from the trash industry, and the majority of the money collected goes directly to California’s landfill management program.
In 2015, California collected an estimated $1.8 billion in recyclable materials, but the majority, or more than $1 billion, went to California State Recycled Products, which provides recycling services for the local waste management system.
According to O’Donnell, the California program is the largest waste collection program in the United States.
California recycles $1 trillion worth of waste every year, and recyclables nearly 60 percent of the nation.
O”Reilly said the “recycling boom” in the country has been fueled by “corporate greed,” but he is hopeful that the state can help ensure that the money raised from recycling does not go to foreign governments or other groups that “have a vested interest in destroying our environment and destroying the planet.
“He added that the $700 million in recycled material that has been collected in California in the last three years has been “not just collected for recycling purposes but for conservation purposes as well.
The bulk of it goes to conservation purposes.
“OBrien added that “the recycling boom in California is really an incredible success story for us and we should not have any doubts that it will continue.
“OReilly has previously criticized California’s recycling program, stating that California “is doing a tremendous job” and “they should be praised for it.
“O&*;*@POTUS is right.
Recyclable waste is the best thing for our planet, and we must help ensure the resources and support that are created are used for good.

The waste that we waste, the waste that is produced and the waste we don’t get is a great example of why recycling is so important.
Recycle the waste, and it goes directly back to the landfilling process.

In the past, the website has also provided information on how to find and recycle recycling materials and resources.
The report said that, based on the data gathered by Waste Recytc, “California Recycle programs have the potential to recycle over 50% of the waste produced and consumed by the public each year.
This can result in millions of dollars in recycling funds being allocated to local governments to support local recycling initiatives.
O&s;*&[email protected] should stop campaigning against California’s $700M Recycle program. “
We believe that by encouraging recycling, our waste can be made a valuable commodity and we can all benefit from this effort,” O’Learns said.

Waste recycling is one of the best ways to get the public off the land.
The public is saving $700+ million each year by recycling,
