How many times have we been told that it’s worth it to recycle?

30 members of Shevet Shoval have decided to experiment to see what it’s really worth. Over the next two weeks, members of Shevet Shoval will throw out household waste in designated bins that are located in 3 different areas. The bins will be weighed before they are emptied during regular garbage removal..

After two weeks, the participants will begin sorting and separating household waste according to a recycling plan. The bins will then be weighed again, and we will learn how much money was saved by recycling!

How do you calculate the financial savings? Ordinary waste goes to a landfill through a process that is more expensive than recycling. So the more we recycle, the less we pay!

And what will be done with the extra money? Don’t worry, Shevet Shoval already has plans
