 Customers should recycle for three reasons:
        
       1) By recycling, the the general cost of the department is less.
      
       2) It's good for the environment. By diverting the tons of recyclables from the landfill to the consumer consumption
           stream, the environment is saved from the use of raw materials.

        3) It's good for the economy. Hope Haven Industries is a
            sheltered workshop that employs approximately forty-five
            people.
