‘Tithing with Trash’ cuts waste, turns hard-to-recycle rubbish into riches

‘Tithing with Trash’ cuts waste, turns hard-to-recycle rubbish into riches | When You Need to Weigh | Scoop.it

[Episcopal News Service] Georgia Army National Guard Capt. Andrew Lane is a man on a mission. If it’s recyclable, “Captain PLaneT” aims to keep it out of the local landfill – and earn cash for his parish while he’s at it.

Lane launched a Tithing with Trash program at St. Gregory the Great Episcopal Church in Athens, Georgia, when he returned home from a deployment in Afghanistan in 2010. Since then, the congregation has earned nearly $4,800 collecting hard-to-recycle items such as empty toothpaste tubes and Solo Cups and sending them to TerraCycle in Trenton, New Jersey, to earn 2 cents per item. TerraCycle, in turn, recycles or “upcycles” the trash – turning it into “green” products such as backpacks fashioned from Lay’s potato chip bags.

50 Cans

 

The aluminum can is one of the most valuable recyclable consumer products and the only packaging solution that allows for complete recyclability. Recycled aluminum cans can be back on the store shelf in as little as 60 days and require 95% less energy, generate 95% less emission and create 97% less water pollution than producing the new metal from ore. An aluminum can is incredibly valuable; the industry estimates that, in the United States, nearly 50 billion aluminum cans are thrown away annually; that's $800 million annually being buried in American landfills.
