Landfilling continues to be a more popular resource management technique than recycling among local service industry establishments.

When we consider the benefits of recycling and the negative effects that landfilling has on our local environment, economy, and population, it can be hard to understand why a business would choose not to recycle.

Yet landfilling remains the overwhelmingly popular choice for the management of discarded resources within the local business community, particularly among service industry establishments, and especially with regards to glass.

In fact, at the start of #RTBD's glass bottle recycling campaign, just 10 of the nearly 1,200 alcohol-serving establishments in Dallas recycled their glass bottles - a rate 77 times lower than that of single-family home dwellers.
