What Can You Expect From Rubbish Direct?
What is Recycling and Why is it Important?
In simple terms, recycling is the process of creating brand new products from used products. The process of recycling begins with separating recyclable materials from the rubbish. These materials are then processed to obtain the final recycled material which can be used as a raw product to manufacture a whole range of new products. For example, plastic cans and glass bottles.
Recycling helps in reducing the amount of chemical waste and greenhouse gases substantially, which is really important these days due to global warming. It also helps in conservation of natural resources like timber, water and minerals.
