Newell recycling center manager Steve Kettlewell has a unique perspective on recycling and the need for a recycling center.
“We’re all trying to get things recycled and not wasting anything,” he said.
“There’s a lot of things we need to recycle now and I think a lot more people than we might think about it have the intention to recycle.”
Kettlewell said recycling was important for all but those with the means.
“I don’t think it’s a luxury item, I think it is important for a lot, if not most people,” he told ABC News.
