Well first, we’ll answer this. Everyone always asks. So here goes:
We just stumbled upon the name RecycleChicken. The Head Hen said, “What does Monster have to do with jobs? We could call it RecycleChicken!” And it stuck
OK, then ... why this RecycleChicken resource and why now?
Lots of people want to recycle. Many want to be able to recycle more than they currently can at the curbside or within their local programs.
Most people really don’t like wasting things that have cost them money.
People have been recycling for much longer than the late-1960’s when the modern recycling movement began. Humankind has recycled from the dawn of man well up through WWII, when recycling of certain materials was a national mandate. Your granny and great-granny recycled back in those days because it was the sensible thing to do. While it might have saved trees or reduced a carbon footprint, that certainly wasn’t the motivation. The motivation was simply to not be wasteful.
We’ve been recycling at the curb or drop-off sites for more than 30 years. More can be done. It’s time for a sensible change to recycling and RecycleChicken changes everything!
RecycleChicken is an easy-to-use resource for individuals, businesses and communities. The RecycleChicken directory provides sensible recycling and reuse locations that are Beyond the Curbside.
In addition to the sensibility recycling makes on an individual level, recycling and reuse is sensible for business too.
According to an EPA study, the U.S. recycling and reuse industry supports more than 56,000 businesses and non-profit organizations that gross more than $236 billion in annual revenues and employ more than 1.1 million people with an annual payroll of nearly $37 billion. Recycling also contributes 2.7 percent of the US gross domestic product, the report states.
Business can and do benefit from either collecting a material from the public or recycling a waste by-product instead of throwing it away. CLUCK HERE to share your business’s waste reduction or recycling success story. We would love to share it on our site.
