WHAT IS RECYCLING?
Recycling is the reuse of materials from used products or waste. It is also sending used materials such as newspapers, bottles, cans, etc to a place where they are made into something new. Recycling is one of the current topics of concern in the world right now. Recycling is the process of separating, collecting, and manufacturing or converting used or waste products into new materials.
WHY IS RECYCLING IMPORTANT?
Recycling is important because waste can have a negative impact in our environment. Recycling helps reduce the pollution caused by waste. It helps extend the life and usefulness of something that has already served its intended purpose. Recycling also saves energy because it takes less energy to process recycled materials compared to new materials.
