Why Recycle? -Recycling is very beneficial to the environment. Protecting the environment is very important for our survival, our health and our well being. If we throw out too much trash, we can harm the environment with the excess waste that is not treated properly. Recycling allows us to use these unwanted waste products to transform them into new products.
Should you just recycle everything?
No! Recycling is great but if we just recycle everything, there might be too many recyclables that need to be processed. Which might result in a backup in the process. So it is better to reduce and reuse than recycle your waste products. This allows there to be enough time for the materials to be processed. It also allows materials to be used longer instead of being thrown out after one use.
