Recycling Records Broken Every Month

ecomaine has broken its own recycling record every month for the past 12 months. From December 2009 through November 2010, its recycling facility has averaged 5,404,660 pounds per month and the organization expects that average to continue increasing well into 2011. Chairman of the Board of Directors Michael Bobinsky, who is Portland’s Director of Public Services, said, “Our educational outreach about the importance of recycling – both environmentally and fiscally – has been a major factor in convincing more people to make recycling a part of their daily routine.”

The fiscal impact, according to Bobinsky, from increased recycling for municipalities, universities, and businesses is significant because the cost of trash disposal is far greater than the cost of recycling.
