to treat or process used or waste materials so as to make suitable for reuse


- Recycling helps to limit the amount of glass, paper and plastic that must be produced. This will end with less garbage in landfills because it's being reused. - Adds jobs to the economy- Slows the consuming of natural resources- Makes people environmentally aware- Promotes scientific advancements in recyclable and biodegradable materials

- seperate factories must be set up for the recycling of materials, and this will just cause more pollution and energy consumption for transport, sorting, cleaning and storage - Twice as many trucks on the road : those collecting garbage and those collecting recycled goods- Pollutants produced by the recycling process itself, including chemical stews when breaking down different products;- Only the recycling of aluminium really makes any money. Reclaiming metals is feasible and fairly easy, whereas plastics and paper are expensive, wasteful and overly difficult- Adds to taxes, and is a tax subsidy costing 8 billion a year in the USA alone- Creation of low-quality jobs. Jobs include sifting through garbage to separate it, dealing with the toxins from the breakdown process, and other manual-intensive labor tasks;



- Metals : aluminium and steel recycling - Paper - Plastic - Glass
