A recent survey showed 9 out of 10 people said they understand the
importance of recycling and would recycle if it were easier. Recycling
is a very environmentally green activity. At Great Northwest Recycling,
a part of our responsibility is to help educate our community about
proper recycling and to make the process as easy as possible for our
clients. Following government compliance and best practices,
