    Recycling different materials has a long history.  As far back as 200BC people in China recycled bronze materials into weapons and chariot parts.  In about 1000AD Turkish citizens recycled marble building facings to make headstones. More modernly, in 1904 the first recycling centers in the US were opened.  For more on the history of recycling check this timeline. http://www.greenecoservices.com/history-of-recycling/
