The recycling loop is not closed and the recycling process completed until the processed items are manufactured into goods and purchased and used by consumers. Recycling will only be successful if the end-products are repurchased.
When shopping, look for recycled goods, especially those with higher post-consumer content. If the place where you shop doesn't carry recycled content products, ask the store owner or manager to stock such items.
For information on where you can find recycled products, call DNR's Waste Management section at 515-281-8878 or visit it at www.iowadnr.gov/waste/recycling/buyrecycled.html.
