Recycling in Angelina County

Why Should We Recycle?


The Environment

Recycling is an investment for our future. By properly disposing of recyclables we reduce the number of greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere, and significantly reduce the level of pollution.



It requires less energy to recycle compared to creating products from raw materials. Recycling helps us preserve our natural resources. 


Landfill Space

By recycling, you are helping to prevent non-biodegradable materials from sitting in our landfills. It can take single-use plastics up to 1000 years to break down in the landfill. Fixing this is simple... RECYCLE!
