Recycling

Recycling is a process to change (waste) materials into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from land filling) by reducing the need for "conventional" waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emissions as compared to plastic production

Recycling

  1. 1.  Recycling is a process to change (waste) materials into new  products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials,  reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials,  reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution (from incineration)  and water pollution (from land filling) by reducing the need  for "conventional" waste disposal, and lower greenhouse  gas emissions as compared to plastic production.  Recycling is a key component of modern waste reduction  and is the third component of the "Reduce, Reuse,  Recycle" waste hierarchy.
  2. 2.  Recycling conserves our valuable natural resources :- Recycling helps to conserve our natural resources such as  oil, metal and water. For example plastic bottles can be  recycled into new plastic bottles and polyester fibers for  use in fleece jumpers and car mats.  Recycling saves energy :- Recycling  aluminum saves  95% of the energy required to produce aluminum from raw  materials. Recycling just one plastic bottle will save  enough energy to power a 60 watt light bulb for 3 hours!
  3. 3.  Recycling protects the environment: Recycling helps to conserve energy, so less greenhouse gases are emitted. Recycling reduces our dependence on landfill. With less materials going to landfill, less harmful emissions like methane gas are released into the earth's atmosphere. Recycling can save you money: By putting more recyclable materials into your recycling bin you reduce the amount of times you have to put your general refuse or black bin out for collection. It is usually more expensive to collect the black bin than the recycling bin, so recycling can save you money.
  4. 4.  Cardboard, paper, newspapers, beverage cartons, books, cards and magazines.  Plastic bottles and plastic film, Glass bottles and jars.  Steel, stainless steel, some alloy steel.  Food cans, Drinks cans and Foil trays.  Fluorescent Tubes, Paint, Printer Cartridges, Spectacles, Textiles, Used Gas Cylinders and Waste Oil.  Green waste and garden waste.
  5. 5. A number of different systems have been implemented to collect recyclates from the general waste stream. These systems lie along the spectrum of trade-off between public convenience and government ease and expense. The three main categories of collection are: Drop-off centres  Buy-back centres  Curbside collection
  6. 6.  We can spread awareness among people about the good effects of recycling.  We can gather people from our neighborhood on week offs and collectively make efforts to collect useful garbage.  We must use bins every time we dump waste material.  We must use internet to know more and about recycling
