Origin of the Recycling Symbol

The original recycling symbol was designed in 1970 by Gary Anderson, a senior at the University of Southern California as a submission to the International Design Conference as part of a nationwide contest for high school and college students sponsored by the Container Corporation of America. The contest was a result of continuing growth of consumer awareness and environmentalism and a response to the first Earth Day.

The symbol represents a Mobius loop consisting of three-chasing-arrows in the shape of a triangle having round vertices. Each arrow twist and turns itself, and all three arrows chase each other. The symbol is a consummate representation of recycling.

In our efforts to be better stewards of our earth, JML Energy Resources, LLC is committed to stopping the dumping of usable waste materials into local landfills.  Every year over 11 million tons of asphalt roof shingles are disposed of in landfills.  

Did you know that the number one filler of C&D landfills is asphalt roofing shingles?  They can cut the life span of a landfill by 33%.  Help us by supporting our efforts to have asphalt roof shingle material banned from C&D landfills.  This will help your landfill stay open longer and allow us to recycle them properly.  Drop us an email anytime.  We would love to hear from you.  Tell us how we can help.
