The Complete Recycling Center — Pottstown, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania

Length: 6 minutes

GreenWorks TV hosts Jaime Smith and Tom Sexton introduce this video on Environmental Ed's visit to Recycling Services Incorporated. Recycling Services assists local communities in recycling 45 different household waste products and remanufacturing some of them back into new products. Owner Jim Crater notes that recycling should only be the final step, after reducing and reusing waste and packaging. The take-home message: It's important to recycle, but it's even more important to reduce waste in the first place, so there's less to recycle.

Produced by the Environmental Fund for Pennsylvania as part of the GreenWorks for Pennsylvania television show entitled, "Buy Recycled."
