What exactly is Recycling?

Recycling is when certain disposed materials are converted into new materials and objects. Recycling can prevent the waste of potentially useful materials and reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials. Recycling makes our air freshener to breathe, environment cleaner and reduces energy usage, air pollution - from incineration and water pollution - from landfills.

3 rules of recycling.

  1. Recycle clean bottles, cans, paper, and cardboard.
  2. Keep food and liquid out of your recycling. No loose plastic bags and no bagged recyclables.
  3. No loose plastic bags and no bagged recyclables.

what is recycling

The following are commonly mistaken for recyclable waste.

Loose bottle caps - Plastic bottles are recyclable, however loose bottle caps are not. The bottle caps are often too small for the recycling machines and some bottle caps are most of the time not even made out of the same type of plastic. Take the cap off, before recycling.

Grocery plastic bags - Most of the thin single-use bags we find at supermarkets are not suitable for recycling. Thicker plastic bags, however, can be recycled as they are made from low-density polyethylene (LDPE). Thinner Grocery bags made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) are too thin for the machines as they wrap around the machine parts and can stop it from working.

Shredded paper - Shredding paper destroys its natural fibers as it does not hold its shape well anymore. Do not shred paper if you want to recycle it.

Paper and/or Cardboard Food Containers - The recycling machines could potentially jam from the grease and other substances on the materials. Grease and food residue can also have a major effect on the quality of paper and cardboard materials. If you remove the contaminated parts with food, a clean box can be recycled.

Paper cups and drink cartons – Similar to above, these are stained with organic substances and are, therefore, unable to be recycled. Most of the time these drinking containers are also lined with plastic which is non-recyclable.

Ceramics - Although they may seem similar to glass which is recyclable, this is not the case. Ceramics are not recyclable. Do not throw your broken china, crockery, or kitchenware in with your glass in the recycling.

Paper towels, napkins, and tissue products - These items are contaminated and not suitable for recycling. The cause can be a lot of reasons, from food residues, body fluids, hygiene materials, and toilet use.

Disposable nappies - The mix of materials and the contamination with human waste make nappies almost impossible to recycle. These single-use items that are contaminated by human waste are also made from composite materials.
