Why is glass bottle recycling so important? I heard glass was just made of sand.
Recycling glass bottles is better for the local economy (job creation), environment (natural resource conservation, water source protection), and community (reduces air pollution, reduces adverse health affects associated with landfilling) than landfilling them. In short, it's an incredibly easy thing to do to help make Dallas a better place to live, work, and play.
