Landfilling waste emits 30x more Greenhouse Gasses than recycling it.1 According to the EPA, the methane gas emitted by landfills is a global warming agent 20x more potent than carbon dioxide. If we recycle more in the waste industry, we can combat climate change and create good new jobs. Join our campaign to transform NYC’s commercial waste system and to make your voice heard for increasing recycling for good jobs and healthy communities for all: http://bit.ly/tdtsignup.
