Sorting rubbish is one of the ways to help us with recycling
By recycling garbage, we can save raw resources. It’s not so difficult, just use special rubbish bins for different kinds of garbage like paper, plastic, glass and metal. Once commingled recyclates are collected and delivered to a central collection facility, the different types of materials must be sorted. This is done in a series of stages, many of which involve automated processes such that a truckload of material can be fully sorted in less than an hour. This process of recycling as well as reusing the recycled material proves to be advantageous for many reasons as it reduces amount of waste sent to landfills, conserves natural resources, saves energy, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and helps create new jobs.
Recycle your gadget
Many big companies start their own recycling programs. For example Apple and HP .Apple enables an owner of the old iPhone, iPad, Mac, or PC to send it for reuse or recycling. If it has monetary value, they’ll apply that toward an Apple Gift Card. Recycle your iPod or mobile phone responsibly. And a proposal for the owner of iPod or any mobile phone : bring your old iPod to an Apple Retail Store and get 10 percent off a new one.
And since 1987 when HP began recycling hardware, it has recovered over 2.3 billion pounds of products for reuse and recycling. HP helps to extend the life of IT hardware through our remanufacturing programs, reducing environmental impacts and making IT equipment accessible to more people and recycle products that are no longer suitable for reuse.
Sometimes big companies do this not only for care about nature, but and for creating modern eco image of the company to increase sales through those people who are worried about eco problems. But it doesn’t matter if both sides are happy.
And of course today there are many national recycling programs. Because every country wants to get benefit from saving energy, saving natural resources .What a country can to do to stimulate process of recycling ?
For instance, support dissemination of garbage cans for sorting different kind of garbage.
Today many schools have created recycling awareness clubs in order to give young students an insight on recycling. These schools believe that the clubs actually encourage students to not only to recycle at school, but at home as well. It’s also a good method, because you try to be “eco” from the beginning of your “consumer” life.
In summary we have the benefits of recycling
Reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators;
Conserves natural resources such as timber, water, and minerals;
Prevents pollution caused by reducing the need to collect new raw materials;
Reduces greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global climate change;
Helps sustain the environment for future generations;
Helps to create new well-payed jobs in the recycling and manufacturing industries in the country.
