Recycling is taking used products and then reusing them. The most common processing involves the collection and processing of waste into a new product. Recycled items include paper, plastics, glass and metals. There are many things that can be recycled. Recycling is something that came to the front to the fore as a means of reducing the amount of waste and helps to save the environment from the dangers of landfill.
Recycling dramatically reduces the amount of waste that gets deposited in our landfills or burned in incinerators. Specially engineered landfill in most cities are designed to contain toxic chemicals flowing out of decaying solid waste from reaching our water systems. But for how long? Already, we have reports of hazardous chemicals polluting water supply in some cities. Municipal solid waste incineration for power generation can be effective, but we are paying the price in terms of increased carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.
Recycling is much more efficient in terms of energy consumption than it produces something from fresh raw materials. Done on a national scale, it can significantly reduce our energy costs. Necessary to extract energy, processing and metal transport from the mine to a refinery is obviously much more than is required in order to recycle the metal used products – it costs more energy to produce new aluminum brand can up to date than to make 20 cans out of recycled materials!
Recycling of plastics is one of the most common types of processing. Plastic is one of the worst elements in our environment. Recycling all of its plastic it will be done on earth great service and help to maintain a healthy environment for future generations.
