AYD Waste Services strives to be a responsible waste management company by recycling any materials that we can. Reduction and recycling have more environmental benefits than just energy and resource consumption reduction. Did you know that landfills contribute to global warming through greenhouse gas emissions? According to the Environmental Protection Agency, decomposition that occurs in landfills creates methane, which is a greenhouse gas that is 21 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Additionally, the incineration of waste at landfills creates carbon dioxide and the transportation of waste does as well. When you recycle, you add less material to contribute to methane and carbon dioxide production.
