Why is recycling so important?
The ever-increasing living standard of people contributes to substantial waste generation. According to reliable sources, almost 75% of the world’s waste could be recycled or reused. Instead of simply disposing to landfills, proper recycling can bring several environmental, economic and social benefits. Therefore, waste recycling has become an opportunity rather than a challenge.
Common recyclable materials
- Biodegradable waste
- Construction & demolition waste
- Electronic materials
- Paper & cardboard
- And many more.
Advantages of recycling
- Recycling paper and wood can save trees and forests.
- Recycling plastics reduces production of new plastics.
- Recycling metals reduces mining waste by 97% and saves more than 90% energy.
- Recycling glass reduces use of new natural materials like sand.
- Requires less energy than that is needed to manufacture from new materials: for instance, recycling aluminum and steel respectively saves 95% and 70% energy.
- Reduces carbon and other harmful emissions.
- Saves money
- Creates jobs: recycling metals creates six times more jobs than disposing. Studies show that recycling created 757,000 jobs/year, which account for $36.6 billion in wages. For every 1000 tons of waste recycled, 1.57 jobs are created, and $76,000 wages are made.
- Saves natural resources: for instance, one ton of recycled paper/ cardboard saves 17 trees, 7,000 gallons of water, and 4000kW of energy.
- And many more benefits.
