RECYCLING: GOING BACK TO THE BASICS

What is recycling?

Recycling is the process of collecting and processing materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and turning them into new products. The recyclability of a material depends on its ability to reacquire the properties it had in its original state.

How do you recycle?

Usually, most people have a recycling bin where they put their plastics, aluminum, paper, glass and cardboard. Some recycling containers ask to separate glass recyclables from other recyclables so it is best to check with your local recycling programs. For common batteries, you can drop them off in communities collection events or in office supply stores.

What is recyclable?

Paper, Cardboard, Gift wraps/bags, Aluminum, Glass, Plastics, and Batteries (in specific battery recycling locations) are recyclable. One important thing to know about all these materials is that the only way you can recycle them is if they are not soiled and don't have any type of resin/laminate on them.

When you recycle, natural resources and materials are not being wasted which helps the environment and wildlife. Recycling saves energy and reduces pollution by reducing the need to collect new raw materials. Also, recycling reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills.
