Recycling is an issue that we should all be aware of and we should all be doing our upmost to ensure that we are doing what we can to prevent the collection and disposal of waste significantly impacting on the environment.
Although you might not think about it too often, the amount of waste that you put into your household waste bin can add to the amount of waste that ends up in a landfill site that will not rot or decompose and therefore will sit in the ground for many years to come and potentially cause a health hazard.
By recycling your waste, you are reducing the amount of rubbish that goes to landfill and also doing your bit for the environment because it can be recycled and reused as something else that you might find on the supermarket shelf or another form of packaging. Recycled materials can also be used to make aeroplanes and cars which is really quite amazing.
Recycling once it has been collected from your home will be taken to a plant for sorting and cleaning. All of the items are sorted into categories and sent on to the relevant place in order for it to be made into something new.
