WHAT IS RECYCLING?

Recycling is the process of converting waste materials into new materials and objects. Recycling of products has a direct and beneficial impact on the environment.

    • Recycling conserves finite natural resources.
    • Recycling conserves fresh water up to 95 percent in the mining and manufacturing process for many materials.
    • Recycling helps prevent waste from going into oceans, which is still a common practice for many countries.
    • Recycling significantly reduces the use of fossil fuel energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
