[greenyes] Recycling efficiency & GHG savings
Dear all,

I'm looking for some statistics on the energy-efficiency of recycling vs new (virgin) production, specifically for wood, plastic, concrete and metal. Similar information on Greenhouse gas emissions (or emissions saved by recycling) would be great. Thanks.
