Madeira Recycled & Composted 1,265 Tons in 2018

Congratulations, Madeira residents! In 2018, we recycled 917 tons of metal, glass, plastic & paper.  We also composted 347.88 tons of yard trimmings.

The recycling and composting efforts in Madeira:
  • Conserved enough energy to power every home in Madeira for 29 days.
  • Reduced more air pollution than if every household in Madeira rode their bicycle to work for 11 weeks,
  • Saved 5,771 trees from being harvested.
  • Created 174 tons of finished compost to regenerate our soil.

On average, each household in Madeira recycled 542 pounds in 2018.  That is 27.89% of all the waste we generate.
