Facts about Recycling:
WHY should we recycle?
Check your knowledge ... Have fun!
Click to start our Recycling QUIZ:
Why, how and what to recycle is a part of BSB's online Conservation education program.
A lot of schools are using our information but recycling facts are still missing in many states. Sometimes laws replace the need for knowledge.
BSB charitable nonprofit offers information for teachers and students, but with your help we can better spread the word!
Many recyclable materials are banned from state landfills, including aluminum cans, wooden pallets and glass alcohol and beverage containers, but often when we walk over a landfill we find these valuable items.
Do you know what materials can be recycled?
|Recycling to save resources!|
All raw materials and all energy are provided by our blue planet Earth, but they are NOT endless.
Unfortunately, most of the provided raw materials and energy are not usable as they appear in Nature and are spread globally in deposits.
Men need to use a lot of energy and resources to produce the materials we need.
We have to collect, clean, concentrate, and transform these resources to generate primary raw materials that are usable for people and industry.
Using recycled materials reduces the amount of energy and reduces the amount of materials we have to dig out!
Most of all things we use can be recycled!
Most of what we throw away is made from materials that are slowly running out
or cannot be replaced quickly enough because of the amount we consume.
Many of the products we throw into landfills
have a value and can be used / recycled again.
How much do you know about Recycling?
Do you know Recycling can lower your gasoline prices?
Most of all metals, most of all glass|
most of all plastics, most of all paper products
most of all organic materials = all can be recycled!
When you recycle organic waste on a compost pile you can make compost from kitchen and garden waste.
Composting green waste saves valuable space in landfills which is running out.
With recycling you save energy
Making new goods out of recycled material saves energy.
Making new aluminum cans from recycled cans uses 20 times less energy than
making cans from the raw material.
1 recycled tin can would save enough energy to power a television for 3 hours.
1 recycled glass bottle would save enough energy to power a computer for 25 minutes.
1 recycled plastic bottle would save enough energy to power a 30-watt light bulb for 6 hours.
70% less energy is required to recycle paper compared with making it from raw materials
and think about all the trees that would stay alive.
Recycling helps to protect the environment or to say it different:
Recycling helps to protect all of us!
Reducing what we have used and recycling all these materials reduces the need to dig up or mine new raw materials,
which always damages the surrounding environment.

How can we define RECYCLING?|
Recycling involves processing used materials into new products in order to prevent waste of potentially useful materials,
reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution (from incineration)
and water pollution (from land filling) by reducing the need for "conventional" waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emissions as compared to virgin production.
Recycling is a key component of modern waste management and is
the third component of the
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" waste hierarchy.
A few common Recyclable materials:
Glass, paper, cardboard, metal, plastic,
textiles, organics, and electronics.
