Recycling plays an essential role in modern waste management and garbage disposal. The vocal advocates of recycling sometimes forget to include the reasons why we should recycle. It is important to know the reasons behind recycling, so as to be better equipped and educated on how to more effectively recycle in the future.
Recycling keeps elements such as paper, glass and aluminum in the business cycle without having to send them to landfill where they cannot be used further. Glass and aluminum can be used many times if they are recycled properly.
It is more energy efficient to use recycled products, rather then having to produce new goods.
Recycling aids the environment by reducing the energy required to create new goods, diverting waste from landfills, and more efficiently utilizing goods and products for their full lifespan (versus one use).
Landfill space is at a premium these days as more and more waste is sent to them. Recycling stops the flow of some waste to the landfill, and allows for longer use of existing landfills.
Many governments, municipalities and organizations provide incentives and cost savings for those who recycle.
