The Importance of Recycling

Recycling: More Than Just Separating Your Rubbish

Recycling is not just about separating waste, but it is also about making a positive impact on the environment. MHM UK LTD is committed to educating people about the importance of recycling and the benefits it brings. This article will provide an overview of recycling processes and the benefits of recycling for the environment.

What is Recycling?

Recycling is the process of collecting, sorting, and processing materials that would otherwise end up in a landfill. These materials include paper, plastic, metal, and glass. In the UK, recycling plays a crucial role in conserving natural resources and reducing pollution.

Benefits of Recycling

Recycling helps to keep materials out of landfills and reduces the need for virgin materials. For example, recycling one ton of paper saves 17 trees and 31,0000 litres of water. Similarly, recycling one ton of plastic saves the equivalent of 4,500 litres of gasoline. By recycling, we’re not only conserving natural resources, but also reducing the energy and water needed to extract and process new materials.

Another benefit of recycling is that it reduces pollution. Extracting and processing new materials can lead to air and water pollution, as well as deforestation. Recycling, on the other hand, leads to less pollution and a smaller carbon footprint.

Recycling and the Economy

By recycling we are creating jobs and supportin local economies. According to the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP), recycling in the UK generates £13 billion in gross value added (GVA) and supports around 47,500 jobs.
