Recycling and Sustainability
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the United States produces approximately 220 million tons of waste each year. This is equivalent to burying over 82,000 football fields six-feet deep in compacted garbage. World Care addresses this growing problem by working with individuals, corporations, and government agencies to keep material out of landfills. We've recycle nearly 5,000,000 pounds of material by taking in donated goods, refurbishing, channeling usable items to humanitarian aid and braking down non-reusable items for recycling.
World Care’s annual recycled goods would take up one square mile of land five feet deep if the path to the landfill were not intercepted. World Care makes a small profit from recycling, which helps to support our other programs.
