What is Recycling & Why You Should Recycle
Recycling involves collecting, processing, and making certain materials reusable. While not all materials are recyclable, the majority can be. Trash and waste contribute to the generation of toxic chemicals and greenhouse gases in landfill sites. Recycling plays a crucial role in reducing overall pollution caused by waste and landfills, contributing to a healthier environment.
What happens to my recycling?
Once recyclable materials are sorted, they are transported to various markets for processing into new raw materials. Common items like plastic bottles and papers often undergo recycling processes that return them to their original state or product, effectively closing the 'life cycle' of these materials. This allows for continuous recycling and reuse. Additionally, more complex materials are recycled to create entirely new products, spanning from furniture to clothing.
