Did you know a plastic bottle can be recycled into new plastic bottles 10 times before being made into another product, like clothing or carpet? Did you know that cans are infinitely recyclable? That’s right, they can be made into new cans forever. And the best part? When you put a can into your curbside recycling, it can be remade into a new can and back on your grocery store shelf within 60 days! Check out the video below for more information.
In 1991, Nevada passed legislation to incorporate a 25% recycling goal. This means that with everything we throw away, we want 25% of that material to be diverted away from the landfill. Nevada Recycles coordinates and administers education programs, events, presentations and various other activities to engage the community to recycle more and generate less waste.
The Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) and Nevada Adminsitrative Code (NAC) are the statutes we follow to run Nevada Recycles.
NRS 444A.010 - 444A.110 Programs For Recycling
NRS 232.007 State Departments General Provisions- Recycling of paper required by state agencies
NAC 444A.005 - 444A.470 Programs for Recycling
