What is Recycling? Whenever we try and define recycling, we need to think of the three r's of modern waste management: reduce, reuse, recycle.
“Reduce" means: Decreasing unnecessary and wasteful purchases, decreasing the volume of waste, and decreasing pollutants.
"Reuse" means taking care of our things so that they can last longer, repurposing used items, donating or giving away unwanted stuff, and upcycling waste materials.
Recycling is a PROCESS, which includes: the Collection and Segregation of waste materials, the Processing and Remanufacturing of these materials, and the purchase and use of the recycled product.
Recycling benefits you, society, and the environment.
The 7 Benefits of Recycling are: Financial Benefit, Conservation of Resources, Energy savings, Community Building, Jobs creation, Strong economy, and Environmental Protection.
Tangible financial benefits include people gaining income from selling recyclables or unwanted items from home and the savings that cities and counties make when landfill costs are reduced due to recycling.
For every 1 million tons of steel recycled saves 1.3 million tons of iron ore, 718,000 tons of coal, and 62,000 tons of limestone.
Recycling Saves Energy: It requires more energy to manufacture a brand new aluminum can than it does to recycle 20 aluminum cans.
Recycling Builds Community: People work together, Communicate, Share ideas, and Support each other when they're involved in a worthy common endeavor like recycling.
Recycling Creates Jobs: 10,000 tons of waste when incinerated, creates 1 job; when landfilled, creates 6 jobs; when recycled, creates 36 jobs!
Recycling helps build a strong Economy in terms of: Lower waste management costs, Cheaper production materials, Energy Savings, and Jobs Creation.
Recycling helps protect the Environment: Reduced contamination risk from landfills, Reduced pollution, Reduced environmental impact from mining or extracting fresh raw materials are all direct results of recycling.
Recycling is a way of life: Once you make the choice to recycle, And stick to that choice everyday, Recycling becomes second nature - a way of life.
Lets all recycle today.
