Issue of recycling is among the most important questions of today. The quality of human life today and in the future in much depends on the way we manage our waste as a society as well as individuals.

It is interesting that at least 60% of rubbish that ends up in garbage, and thus in landfills, could be reused either by composting or by recycling. Recycling is a key to preserving energy and protecting our environment. When talking about packaging waste, precisely:

  • 1 recycled tin can would save enough energy to power a television for 3 hours
  • 1 recycled glass bottle would save energy to power a computer for 3 hours
  • 1 recycled PET bottle would save energy to power a 60 watt light bulb for 3 hours
  • 70% less energy is required to recycle paper compared with making it from raw materials

Recycling is the process of collecting and processing materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and turning them into new products. Benefits of recycling are enormous. It reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and thus conserves natural resources (timber, water, and healthy soil). It also prevents pollution and reduces natural exploiting by reducing the need to collect new raw materials, it saves energy as well as reduces greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global climate change. Helps create new well-paying jobs in the recycling and manufacturing industries in order to improve life standard of people in every sense.
