The Woodlands recycles 13,000 tons of material a year!
Recycling saves resources, prevents pollution, supports public health and creates jobs.
Help keep the recycling program successful by only recycling the accepted items, never bagging your recyclables, and keeping plastic bags out of your cart.
Please follow these guidelines to ensure proper recycling of materials:

*No plastic bags or film.
*Do not bag recyclables; leave them loose.
*Only clean paper; no food stains or grease.
*Empty and rinse containers and cans.

The real question is how many of those tons are actually recycled and become usable materials?
I heard after China stopped importing recycles some years ago, most of our recycles go to landfill directly...
