The importance and Benefits of Recycling
Recycling is processing used materials (waste) into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from landfilling) by reducing the need for "conventional" waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emissions as compared to virgin production, but what exactly is recycling and how beneficial is it really to us and the environment?
Recycling is a very environmentally green activity. Today the most common products in cities recycling programs are paper products, cardboard, plastic, glass and aluminum. Take time to read the importance of recycling below:

1- Recycling conserves both raw materials and energy and reduces the amount of waste we produce.
2- Recycling reduces our reliance on landfills and incinerators.
3- Recycling protects our health and environment when harmful substances are removed from the waste stream.
4- Recycling conserves our natural resources such as timber, water, and minerals because it reduces the need for raw materials.
5- Recycling works only when consumers, businesses and organizations buy products made with recycled material.
6- Recycling is more than just placing certain materials in a special bin, the recycling loop is complete only when materials that you have separated for recycling are processed and remanufactured into new products, which are then sold.
7- Always look at the level of post-consumer recycled content in a product: this is the material that has been collected from consumers and reprocessed.
8- Recycling protects and expands manufacturing jobs and increases competitiveness.
9- Recycling prevents pollution caused by the manufacturing of products from virgin materials.
10- Recycling decreases emissions of greenhouse gases that contribute toglobal climate change.
11- Recycling helps sustain the environment for future generations.
12- Recycling saves energy.

Reduce, Reuse & Recycle !
