Recycling makes sense for the environment because resources that would normally go into a landfill are reused. According to a study in Environmental Action, Winter, 1995, "Producing recycled paper is dramatically cleaner for the environment than making paper products from virgin wood fiber. Recycled paper mills generate a fraction ofthe toxic substances such as chlorine, chloroform, ammonia, acids and solvents that are commonly released in paper manufacturing." According to Daniel Press, professor of environmental studies at the University of California, the study confirms the problems faced by the industry, but it also shows the enormous improvement that is possible with new technology and manufacturing processes. Comparing the toxins produced per 100 tons of finished product. Press found that mills producing both recycled pulp and paper released three to 100 times fewer pounds of toxics on average than mills using virgin wood. According to this, recycling makes sense for the environment. Many curbside pickups will accept corrugated cardboard. However, many do not have facilities on their trucks for baling this material. Therefore, they may request that residents cut the material into pieces no larger than 2' x 2' and tie the material together for easy handling. 4-H members earn awards Local 4-H'ers Chris Little of Union,EricRuthandTimHoeftof Hantley received state awards in the 4-H State Livestock Judging contest onJune 20 at the University of Illinois in Champaign.
