Carbon Footprint

Why Recycle?

Recycling is one of the best ways to reduce harmful emissions. Greenstar uses the EPA's Waste Reduction Model (WARM) to analyze the environmental benefits of recycling programs. With this tool, we can help our customers quantify the reduction in emissions and energy savings achieved by recovering recyclables from waste. 

Greenstar recovers two million tons of recyclables each year which reduces carbon emission by 6.1 million Metric Tons of Carbon Dioxide Equivalent (MTCO2E). The emissions reductions are equivalent to:

  • 1.3 million cars removed from the roadway each year
  • 182,000 households annual energy use
  • 6 million barrels of oil
  • 275 million gallons of gasoline
  • 6.6 million cubic yards of landfill
