By Karen Horsley-Clark, BBC News MagazineA lot of us are now aware that we don’t waste all our disposable goods when we recycle them, but some are unaware of the advantages of doing so.
It turns out the more we recycle our waste, the more valuable it is, according to a new study.
In fact, the study by the Waste Management Association of Canada and the University of British Columbia found that if we use recycled waste more than once a year, we’re saving more than $1,200 per year.
It’s not the first time that we have been taught that we can save money by recycling household waste.
But this is the first study to look at the economics of recycling waste.
The study looked at the impact of recycling on the environment, including landfill sites and landfills, and the impact on food waste.
And the study shows that recycling reduces landfill use by nearly 10 per cent.
The study found that the average household recycles only $5.30 worth of household waste per year, compared to $22 per year that the study says can be saved if the household recycler did the same amount of work each year.
The report also found that recycling costs the average Canadian household $17.75 per year to maintain.
The authors argue that these savings are likely due to the fact that when a household recyclers its waste, it is able to reclaim more of its original weight than when it recycles household waste that it has reused.
They also found there was no evidence that the use of recycled material in landfill was more harmful to the environment than the use in landfill.
However, they did find that household recycling was more costly for the environment and on the economic front, and that the recycling cost was a factor that made households feel better about using recycled material.
The study found a higher level of recyclability, as well as less waste disposal, when the household recycling program was compared to the current program.
This may be because when households recycle their waste, they get to reuse a lower percentage of their waste than when they do not.
The researchers also found a lower environmental impact, and a lower rate of landfill space contamination when recycling was compared with non-recyclable material.
This study, the largest study of its kind, is the result of a partnership between the Waste Services Association of Nova Scotia and the Environment Canada.
This is the largest recycling program in the world.
So the researchers used landfill sites to collect the data.
They surveyed householders in three Canadian cities in Nova Scotia to see how much household recycling they were doing each year, and how much money they were saving in landfill space.
They also looked at how much landfilling the households were doing.
This will help them identify the impact their program is having on the landfill.
In the study, they also looked for any impacts on the health of the environment.
And they did not find any problems with the way the waste was collected or recycled.
However they found that while there is less waste going into the landfill, they are still contributing to landfill pollution.
“The results are clear: Household recycling programs significantly reduce landfill emissions, and increase landfill reuse and recycling,” said Dr. Jody MacDougall, the co-author of the study and a waste management professor at the University’s School of Community Health.
“This study has implications for all governments, all sectors, all levels of government, and for anyone who wants to use the recycling to reduce landfill use.”
While recycling is good for the planet, it’s not without its downsides.
Dr. MacDougal said the recycling is also not a good option for people who don’t have access to landfill facilities, and can’t afford to pay for them.
He said the study should be seen as a start, not an end, of the conversation.
“What we’re doing with the report is making the case for recycling as a viable way of reducing landfill pollution,” he said.
“The fact is, we can make a difference with our household waste, we just need to get in the habit of recycling.”
