Recycle & Reuse

Recycling is the process of collecting certain materials that would otherwise be considered waste — like old metal, paper, wood, or plastic for example — and turning them into new recycled products.

The first step required for recycling is collecting recyclable materials from communities. Families who recycle items such as paper, bottles and cans, place the items in recycling collection bins.

Apart from the items you may recycle at home, many other old or worn out things are recycled for parts and materials such as:

  • Tires
  • Computers
  • Mattresses
  • Cars

Why Recycle?

Recycling helps reduce the amount of trash that is disposed of in landfills. Recycling, rather than throwing things away, is also better for the environment. One of the best things you can do is learn more about recycling, and  spread the word and encourage others to recycle as much as possible. Does your family recycle? It is never too late to start conserving our precious resources.
