The recycling process - benefits
• The reason for recycling is important for a number of reasons. One of the most obvious reasons lies in reducing the amount of natural resources that are consumed for every new product. Since recycling conserves energy the process produces a smaller carbon footprint, thereby helping the environment.
• The recycling process also prevents water as well as air pollution while preventing the build-up of rubbish accompanied by the proliferation of landfill sites. Since materials are brought to a recycling facility they do not wind up in areas that do not have a place for them.
• Furthermore, if the recycling procedure is perfectly efficient it would be possible to convert all old waste products into similar amounts of new products.
