Recycling is processing ysed materials (wate) into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reuce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage,reduce air pollution (fron incineration) and wáter pollution ( fron landfilling) by reducins the need for “convetional waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emissions as comparend tovirgin production. Recyclin is a key component od modern waste production and in the third component of the “ Reduce, Reuce, Recycle” waste hirarchy.
Recyclable material include manykinds of glass, paper, metal,. Plastic, textiles, and eectronics. Although similir in effecr, the composting or other reuse or biodegradable waste – such as foodor garder waste – is nottypically considered reysaing. Material to be recycled r either brought to a collection center or picker up fron the curside, then sorted, cleaned, and reprocessed into new materiasbound for manufacturing.
In the sense, recycling of a material would produce a fres supply of the same material- fot example, uses office papaer would be converted intpo new officepaper.. Hower, this is ofter difficult or too expensive ( comparer wint producing the same produc fron raw material sor the sources), so “recycling “ of many products or materialsinvolves their reuse in producing different materials (e.g., paperbouard) insetead. Another frorm of recycling is the salvage of certain materials fron complex products, either due to theirintrinsic value (e.g., lead fron car batteries, or gol fron computer componentes), or due to their hazardous nature (e.g., temoval and reuse of mercury from various ites). Criticsdispute the net economic and environmental benefits or recycling over its costs, and suggers that proponents of recycling often make matters worse ando suffer from confirmtion bais.
