If we get rid of recycling will we increase or reduce pollution?

    If we get rid of recycling then we will definitely increase pollution.  Our water supply will become more polluted as more and more chemicals leach into it.  Air pollution would also increase if we stop materials because factories have to work much more to create new materials than they have to work to create recycled goods.

    Just to add to the above, if we didn’t recycle we would have so much more plastic, metal, and paper products sitting in our landfills.  This is bad because it takes a long time for things to break down (especially plastic and metal). plastic is estimated to take at least 1,000 years to decompose.
