Residential Recycling Services
Our Most Sensible Choice
Today we face numerous environmental problems contributed by man. Acid rain, the greenhouse effect, and air and water pollution, are only a few of the problems. As we head into the 21st Century, we will continue to experience a diminishing supply of natural resources.
It is important therefore, that we conserve our valuable resources by reusing and recycling them whenever possible. By recycling, less energy is required than when using virgin resources, both in the initial extraction of resources and in manufacturing new products. Recycling conserves valuable natural resources and saves millions of dollars of valuable materials that would otherwise be buried in landfills.
That is why Roseburg Disposal has made a commitment to recycling... please become a part of this endeavour.
