Recycling involves processing used materials into newproducts to prevent waste of potentially useful materials,reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energyusage, reduce air pollution (from incineration) and waterpollution (from landfilling) by reducing the need for"conventional" waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gasemissions.
Paper recycling is the process of recovering waste paper and remaking it into new paper products. There are three categories of paper that can be used as feed stocks for making recycled paper: mill broke, pre-consumer waste, and post-consumer waste.
Metal recycling is the process of reusing old metal material, mainly aluminum and steel, to make new products. Recycling old metal products uses 95% less energy than manufacturing it from new materials.
Plastic recycling is the process of recoveringscrap or waste plastics and reprocessing thematerial into useful products, sometimes completelydifferent in form from their original state. Forinstance, this could mean melting down soft drinkbottles then casting them as plastic chairs andtables.
