We are a Zero Landfill Recycler
That statement means a great deal to us and is one we are very proud of being able to claim. The average landfills generate 6 million gallons of contaminated groundwater each and every year. With over 50,000 open and closed landfills in the U.S. that means we generate 300 billion gallons of contaminated water each year. That is the U.S alone. The amount of contaminated groundwater created all over the world is staggering. Whether it is an old landfill and the contaminated rainwater seeps directly into our groundwater, or it is a modern landfill and the rainwater is collected and sent to a treatment plant. The result is the same. Contaminated water enters into our water stream.
Some will tell you that landfills are safe because they are lined to prevent seepage of contaminated water into our groundwater supply. Don’t believe it. Even the liner manufacturers will tell you that liners have a limited lifespan. Liners get punctured by the material in a landfill. Liners degrade and weaken over time. Eventually all liners fail. When they do the contaminated rainwater they are designed to catch seeps into our groundwater the same as unlined landfills. Lining of a landfill just puts off the problem to a future generation.
Let’s stop putting our problems onto the shoulders of our children and grandchildren.
Let’s solve the problem now.
Green USA Recycling is committed to being the leader in the move away from landfills and toward 100% recycling of our nation’s waste. This is what we are about. This is our focus, desire, and drive. Other than nuclear waste, there is nothing we throw away as a nation that we cannot recycle. There is no need for a single ounce of waste to be buried. From a banana peel to chemical waste and everything in between, there is a recycling option that renders that waste safe and converts it to a valuable commodity. The only thing that stops us from doing it is the will to do it. If your community wants to join the march toward becoming a Zero Landfill Nation call us today. We are building. We would love to talk to you about building one of our recycling centers in your community. Your community would not only attract other green minded businesses, but would be bringing valuable jobs in this continuing faltering economy
