So, What is Recycling?
Recycling refers to the collection of all items marked as recyclable. These items, such as paper, cardboard, glass, metals and some plastics are sent to resource recovery plants where reusable materials are extracted ready to be made into something new. By extracting as much reusable materials from our rubbish as possible, we reduce the amount of rubbish take to landfill, and minimise the use of new raw materials and non-renewable recourses. For this reason, householders and businesses are urged to separate recyclable materials from their everyday junk.
What happens if we don’t recycle?
There are a number of problems that stem from a lack of recycling. Landfill is space consuming, expensive and has a negative effect on the environment. Rubbish that sits in landfill creates a toxic liquid called Leachate. Leachate is made up of organic acids, dissolved chemicals and rainwater. Unfortunately, this liquid easily contaminates any surrounding land and waterways.
Rubbish sitting in landfill also creates methane, which is a greenhouse gas and major contributor to global warming. But it’s not all glum. By doing our bit and recycling as much as possible, we can reduce landfill, cut down on contamination to land and waterways, and help keep our sea life safe.
