  • What is Recycling? • Recycling is a process in which waste materials are treated in a way that they can be used again. • Recycling is a key component of modern waste management and is the third component of the "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" waste hierarchy. • Recyclable materials include many kinds of glass, paper, metal, plastic, textiles, and electronics. • Materials to be recycled are either brought to a collection center or picked up from the curbside, then sorted, cleaned, and reprocessed into new materials bound for manufacturing.
  • Processes Of Recycling : Collection The first step required for recycling is collecting recyclable materials from communities. Families who recycle items such as paper, bottles and cans, place the items in recycling collection bins. These bins usually have the recycling symbol on them.
  • Processing The second step involves processing the recyclable materials. This includes sorting the materials into groups, cleaning them and getting them ready to be sold to manufacturers who will turn the materials into new products.
  • Manufacturing Manufacturing is the third step in the recycling process. Many items you may see every day are made from recycled materials. Newspapers, paper towels, office paper, plastic bottles and aluminum cans are not only made of recycled materials, but they can also be recycled again.
  • Purchasing The last step, but certainly not the least, involves the purchasing of recycled products. When consumers purchase products that have been made with post consumer material the recycling process has been completed and can then be repeated. If you have the choice to purchase a product made from recycled materials, instead of one that was not, what do you think you should do? It takes education and awareness to remember to recycle and purchase recycled products.
  • Benefits Of Recycling • Recycling helps reduce the amount of trash that is disposed of in landfills. • Recycling, rather than throwing things away, is also better for the environment. • Currently it is believed that the amount of carbon dioxide in the earth’s atmosphere is causing global warming which can have devastating long term effects. • Recycling is one of many ways that people can cut down the amount of carbon dioxide that is released into our atmosphere. • Purchasing recycled paper is also better for the environment because it takes less energy to produce recycled paper and saves some trees along the way.
  • Composition Of Daily Waste
  • Recycling at Home • Apart from the items you may recycle at home, many other things such as old tires, computers, mattresses, cars and more are recycled for parts and materials. • The best way to avoid wasting valuable resources is to reduce consumption in the first place. For items that are used and can’t be re-used, recycling offers many benefits. • One of the best things you can do is learn more about recycling, and especially to spread the word and encourage others to recycle as much as possible. Does your family recycle? It is never to late to start conserving our precious resources.
  • Easy Ways to Recycle and Use How to use waste materials: 1. Plastic jars and tins can be used as piggy banks and pen holders. 2. Cartons can be used to store many things. 3. Old cloth can be used as shopping bags. Mats could also be made. 4. Waste paper can be recycled or used in artwork. You can also make files with old chart paper. 5. Spoilt toothbrushes can be used for spray- painting. 6. Papier- Mache can be made with waste paper, old newspapers, torn chart papers (which are not in use) etc. Other things to know: • Protect your environment!
