Composition : Recycling


Recycling is the process of converting waste into reusable material. The recyclability of a material depends on its ability to reacquire the properties it had in its original state.

Recycling is one of the 3 R’s, where the other two are reducing and reusing. Reducing refers to trying to reduce the amount of waste. Reusing refers to when we reuse something the way it is. 

Recycling is a method of procedure that includes the collection and breaking down of waste material to create something new out of it. By this process, non-biodegradable materials are melted or broken down and create something useful.

Almost everything that we use can be recycled like paper, plastic, metal, glass, furniture, toys, artifacts, vehicles, etc. The various materials that we recycle have to go through a process. Different materials go through different processes.

Paper is the most used material on the earth. For recycling paper firstly tear it down into small pieces and dissolve it into water. Then add chemicals that filter out the ink and dirt. After filtering, the paper takes the form of pulp and this pulp is later converted into clean paper.

Metals are first chopped into small pieces and then they are melted and remoulded into new shapes.

Glass has an easier way to recycle. They just break it into pieces and then they melt it and recast them.

The process of plastic recycling is a little bit complex because there are different types of plastics. But the basic process is to melt it and recreate another plastic item.

Recycling saves the earth by facilitating the reprocess of paper which will save millions of trees. Recycling saves a lot of energy. Because many things that we recycle can easily be converted into virgin materials. Recycling reduces the burden of the environment that takes years to decompose. It is supremely vital for the environment and for humans too.
