The Importance of Recycling

deforestation. Since deforestation is prevented, there will be less soil erosion and less
carbon emissions in the air.

Another importance of recycling is the prevention of harmful chemicals from
contaminating the earth. Some products such as batteries, light bulbs, etc contain
chemicals. If these products were not recycled i.e. thrown into a dump site, there is a
possibility that the chemicals in these products may leak out. It is not uncommon
where there are news reports that rivers became contaminated because of chemical
leaks from improperly-handled waste.

Another benefit of recycling is that there will be less demand for garbage landfills. In
every major populated area, the problem of finding land for garbage landfills is a
problem. Local authorities are finding it difficult to look for a suitable site for landfills.
Recycling reduces the amount of garbage that is brought into these landfills. Instead
of being a garbage site, lands can be used for parks, agriculture, commercial use and
housing.

The recycling of biodegradable waste, on the other hand, can be used for the
production of electricity. Biodegradable materials emit methane. When done in a
large-scale level, these methane emissions can produce enough electricity to power a
small community. Another benefit of recycling biodegradable materials is that some
of these materials are rich in soil nutrients. When recycled, these can be used as
fertilizers.

Some garbage sites use incineration in eliminating wastes. Through recycling, there
will be less garbage to incinerate which means that there will be less air pollution and
less greenhouse gases in the air.

Plastics are widely used today more than ever. When not recycled, plastics take a
very long time to degrade. Some these plastics find its way to waterways and
oceans. In some urban areas, flooding occurs because plastics thrown improperly
were found clogging rivers and waterways. Plastics that find its way to the oceans
are harming the aquatic life. Some fishes and marine mammals die because plastics
were mistaken for food. Another case is that plastics can destroy the habitat of
marine life. Recycling of plastics prevents these from happening. Marine life can foster
and there will be less flooding.

Recycling is defined as the processing
of used materials or waste. Recycling
is increasingly becoming popular as
people are becoming more
environmentally conscious about the
impact of garbage to the natural
environment.

One reason recycling is important is
that less natural resources is utilized
in the creation of products. For
example, the recycling of paper
reduces the amount of trees felled.
Rather than cut trees for the creation
of paper, a used paper products are
used. Thus, recycling prevents
