outline the purpose and benefits of recycling



  1. 0 Votes

    Recycling is a process that turns materials that would otherwise be trash into valuable resources. Trash into treasure so to speak. The purpose (or rather one of many purposes) is to keep trash from building up on Earth’s landfills doing nothing while we produce new goods. 

    Some of the benefits of recycling (in the US in particular) include:

    • protecting manufacturing jobs
    • making the country more competitive globally
    • saving energy
    • decreasing the need for landfills 
    • reducing pollution
    • reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases
    • maintaining and sustaining the environment for future generations


    These benefits primariy came from the Environmental Protection Agency’s website on recycling.
