    According to a quick Google search and selecting the first thing that showed up: "The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that 75 percent of the US waste stream can be recycled or composted, but we're only doing so for just over 34 percent of it."  Come on people!  We can do better!

    Did you know: In response to many residential recycling programs removing glass from their recycling programs, Pittsburgh Area PRC will be hosting pop-up glass recycling events?  Check it out here: http://prc.org/programs/collection-events/glassrecycling/
