By recycling 100 containers correctly, you have saved
- 9.7 kg Greenhouse gas (GHG) (equivalent to 64 km of driving)
- 33.3 kWh of energy (equal to a 50w light bulb on for 660 hours)
- 5.1 kg from the landfill
But, to get 100 containers refunded
You need to spend, on average, 23 minutes to drive back and forth refund (generating 3.45kg of Greenhouse gas (GHG)), 15 minutes to cue and deposit, not to mention stacking your car with bags full of smelly containers, all for a 10 dollar refund.
