Recycling is a word that gets thrown around a lot, but what does it really mean? Well, recycling is the process of turning materials that would otherwise become waste into valuable raw materials that can be used to manufacture new products. It’s an important step in creating a more sustainable future.
Why is recycling important? Well, in most cases, the recycling process uses far less energy than manufacturing a product from brand new raw materials, which means you’re saving energy when you recycle. Plus, recycling:
- Conserves natural resources
- Helps reduce the pollution caused by manufacturing products from scratch
- And helps prevent landfills from filling up with trash.
All in all, recycling helps protect the environment for future generations.
The document below clarifies what is considered trash and what can be recycled. It includes what to do with your batteries, your plastic bags, glass, your pizza box, your styrofoam and more.
