Here is a picture that Nikki Goeser took earlier today from a Staples store in the Nashville area.  This is a huge difference in price!  It takes more energy to recycle paper.  This price doesn't even include all the time costs involved with people separating out their garbage to be picked up.

Paper that ends up in a landfill doesn't biodegrade very well, allowing the carbon originally captured by the trees to stay in the earth - maybe to end up as coal in a few million years. But if we recycle, we inhibit the process for carbon sequestration.
