Recycling News

Recycling is the process of collecting and processing materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and turning them into new products. This essential waste management strategy reduces the consumption of fresh raw materials, curtails energy usage, decreases air and water pollution from landfilling and incineration, and lowers greenhouse gas emissions. Commonly recycled materials include paper, cardboard, glass, metal, and certain plastics. Recycling involves several stages, including collection, sorting, cleaning, and processing into materials that can be used in manufacturing.
