Recycling is the process by which materials are re-used to manufacture new products or make new things.
Recycling helps to reduce pollution, since this reduces the demand of new products hence reducing pollution caused while manufacturing new products. Also the landfills used to store the waste, recycling them decreases the level of waste stored here. It helps lower the cost of products. The cost of making new products is expensive, recycling at large scale will help save a large amount of money thus beneficial to the business economy. Recycling is environmentally friendly to the biodiversity since it re-uses existing waste, rather than extracting new elements from the ground. it helps to reduce incineration, since the amount of rubbish that is to be burned is reduced. Burned rubbish produces ash and this is difficult to decompose and also results to the emission of toxic gases that are harmful to the environment. Recycling helps to save energy, since energy used is less compared to the one that is used to manufacture a new product. It also reduces the energy required to extract, refine, and transport new products. It helps create job opportunities to many people thus reducing the unemployment level in different places.
