The recycling loop includes three steps: collecting recyclable materials, physically recycling the materials, and purchasing items made from recycled materials. As a first step, many communities have set up curbside recycling programs in which materials such as newspaper, plastic, and glass are collected in containers separate from waste. Some towns and cities that don’t offer curbside pickup have recycling facilities whee residents can drop off recyclable materials free of charge. It is simple to recycle at home. Keep the recycling containers in a convenient early on, but eventually recycling will become a habit that you incorporate into everyday tasks. Separating the recyclables is one of the most important factors when it comes to making recycling economical. After everything is sorted, it’s compacted and baled and ready for sale.
