Recycling

  1. 1. Recycling<br />
  2. 2. What is Recycling?<br />Recycling involves processing used 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 landfilling) by reducing the need for &quot;conventional&quot; waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emissions.<br />
  3. 3. Whatcan be recycled?<br />glass<br />paper<br />metal<br />plastic<br />textiles<br />electronics<br />
  4. 4. Paper<br />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.<br />
  5. 5. Metal<br />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.<br />
  6. 6. Plastic<br /> Plastic recycling is the process of recovering scrap or waste plastics and reprocessing the material into useful products, sometimes completely different in form from their original state. For instance, this could mean melting down soft drink bottles then casting them as plastic chairs and tables.<br />
