To recycle or not to recycle that is an important question that we all need to ask
ourselves. As the population continues to grow and the earth gets more and more
crowded with people and their waste it becomes a major issue of whether there will be
enough space on the planet earth for future generations and their waste (trash) too. When
first beginning to collect trash and and counting the trash my attitude was - what
influence could my family make? But as I began to research recycling and how some
wastes pollute the environment my attitude took a change. The attitude turned more
toward concern than what or how much my waste contributed to the bigVIEW DOCUMENT
2210 words - 9 pagesSince the inception of a widespread recycling program, there have been problems hindering the full potential of energy renewal and resource reconsumption. Recycling is the reuse of materials to help reduce the waste of natural resources. Recycling has many beneficial aspects associated with it; it helps save energy, natural resources, landfill space, and money, and it also helps create jobs ("Why Recycle"). Despite all of these positive attributes of recycling, the rates at which it is occurring is severely sub par. The major problem occurring with the entire issue is not that people choose to waste all renewable materials, but more in the respect that people aren't educated enough toVIEW DOCUMENT

Fish sometimes mistake the small pieces of trash for food, and they can choke from it. Also, seals are entangled and killed by this trash. Marine animals are dying, beaches are being polluted, and the health of sea-life-eaters can be at risk, all because people throw their trash in the ocean instead of recycling it. Since 60-80% of marine litter is plastic, and most plastic isn’t biodegradable, the majority of the trash that is dumped in the oceans will stay there and continue to affect these factors for decades (NRDC). If people would recycle more, these problems could easily be fixedVIEW DOCUMENT

Recycling is simply returning materials to their raw material components and then using these again to supplement or replace new materials in the manufacture of a new product. It is important for every person to take responsibility for his or her own contribution to the recycling effort. Recycling is known as reusing and restoring our garbage, most people don't understand it can also include donating old clothes to charitable organizations, reusing plastic containers to store food in the refrigerator, and many other activities we alreadyVIEW DOCUMENT

They host a number of different shows and publish various different reports on the plastic industry. (4)The resin identification code was developed to facilitate recycling. At the time, a growing number of communities were implementing recycling programs; therefore it was developed to meet their needs and provided manufacturers an identification system. The resin identification code is now used internationally. They help identify the resin which allows separation of different polymer types for recycling. The resin coding system is a means of identifying theVIEW DOCUMENT

The true meaning of recycling is to process the used or unwanted waste products that our society produces and turn them into renewable and reusable products. The process of recycling reduces the overall cost of manufacturing new products from raw materials and it also lowers the use of energy. There are many products that can be turned into recyclable products. With the technology advancements andVIEW DOCUMENT
2543 words - 10 pagesFactors Shaping Recycling Habits
The United States generates more solid waste each year than any than any other nation. The total cost of disposing of this waste has reached nearly $75 billion annually. Only 17% of the municipal solid waste is recycled in the United States, compared with 40% in Japan and up to 60% in some Western European countries (Oskamp et al., 1995). America's landfill system for disposing of this waste is quickly reaching its limits, and managing this waste is becoming increasingly costly and problematic. There are two solutions available for this problem: reduce the amount of waste originally generated or to increase recycling (Porter et al., 1995). In focusingVIEW DOCUMENT

I remember the first day I had to start recycling; it was day one at my first duty station. The base separated and recycled everything; I thought it was such a waste of my time. I was the lowest ranking so it was my job to take care of the divided wastes and recyclables. Before long we were given separate bins for trash, recyclables, and green waste to use at home. It didn’t take long to realize that I could save our home, from home. We bought a small compost container for the kitchen and a composter to go in the back yard, and had to repeatedly remind ourselvesVIEW DOCUMENT

Recycling has many benefits, some examples are: it saves money in production and energy cost, it helps save the environment from extraction and processing materials and it means less trash needs to be disposed. “Recyclable material from garbage will extend the life of the county’s landfill, keeping the county's landfill rates down" (Chris 1). A landfill costs $20 million or more to build and it takes millions to operate. And where does the money come from? It comes from local tax payers. If we reduced the amount of trash that is being thrown, then landfills trash will be reduced and that would save county economic problems. ThereVIEW DOCUMENT

People everywhere are making a conscious effort to reduce their waste and, more importantly, recycle. But still it may not be enough, because with every new idea you can find a skeptic. So to protect our planet and ensure its health, the United States needs to instill laws that make recycling mandatory, because the steps they have taken thus far are not enough. Many Americans do not take recycling seriously because they are not well informed and do not consider it a pressing matter. But recycling has numerous benefits as opposed to notVIEW DOCUMENT

Recycling water in Canada is an important issue to understand and implement because of its wide ranging benefits in environmental matters. Canadian wastewater can be recycled by water treatments, each of these treatments results in varying water qualities, and these varying water qualities can be reused for industrial, unrestricted access or restricted access uses. Recycling wastewater is a crucial part of sustainable development; however, many communities in Canada are not active participants of this subject. Although wastewater reclamation and reuse projects are generally complex and require much planning and investment, the benefits are rewarding. When reusing waterVIEW DOCUMENT

Recycling is not the one way that we can help to save the earth for the future but also benefit the society. United States is the nation that consumes the most products, and that is the reason why the US needs to worry about recycling more than any other country. Some of the materials such as plastic that we throw away take thousands of years to decompose, and some materials like aluminum, glasses, and paper, can be easily recycled and doing so recycle them is a greater benefit more than just throwing it away.

People Need to Recycle In the United Sates, where the population is inflated every year. The amount of space for landfills decreases every day. The need for recycling should not be asked, it should just be done out of habit. Everyone in America needs to recycle, to help the lamdfill problem, help the environment, and help produce new products from recycled goods. In America there is about two-hundred and eight tons of residential and commercial trash generated a year, 4.3 pounds per person a day (Prichard 1A). This is an overwhelming amount of trashed produced yearly. When people recycle this number can be drastically cutVIEW DOCUMENT

Recycle, the name itself nearly tells all. To recycle is to take old and make new from the old material. Glass, metal, and plastic can all be recycled by being melted down and remolded into something new. Paper can also be recycled, only the process is a bit different. When industries recycle paper they start by taking the old paper and mashing it into a pulp. The process is very similar to how they make new paper from wood; the biggest difference is the amount of bleach used. One of the biggest set backs for the recyclingVIEW DOCUMENT

Aluminium can also be recycled many times without loss of quality; it only takes 5% of how much energy it originally took to make aluminium to recycle it. Therefore it can be seen as a material which takes a lot of energy to produce but can be recycled many more times much economically. Which means saves energy and puts less pressure on landfills.To produce Aluminium is highlyVIEW DOCUMENT

Introduction to Metals
Metals are natural components from the earth that are found in compounds but are separated to individuals. The recycling process of metals begins by separating the metals collected into two groups, aluminum and steel, reclaimable metals include aluminum products such as tin coated steel containers, bi-metal containers, nonferrous metals, and ferrous metals. After the metals have been classified by type, they are then dissolved into a molting hot liquid which is later poured into blocks and set-to cool. Aluminum melts at 1200 degrees Fahrenheit whereas steel melts at an even higher temperature of 2, 800 degrees Fahrenheit .Hence more energy is need to make steelVIEW DOCUMENT
