What is recycling?
Recycling can be defined as the separation of materials from the waste stream that can include glass, paper and plastic. These materials are processed back into raw materials for the construction and production of new products.
Recycling is a powerful form of sustainable waste management. It can help ensure that the delicate environmental balance between air, land and water is maintained in order to protect the safety and well-being of First Nations community members.
Recycling can help prevent toxins from polluting the environment in addition to maximizing the life of raw materials in order to extend the life of landfill sites and lessen the potential negative impact to air, soil and water.
What are the benefits of recycling?
There are many benefits for establishing and using a recycling program in your First Nations community, in particular:
- Conversing energy and reducing the need for virgin resources
- Recycled products forego the environmental degradation associated with virgin raw materials and products
- Helping to lessen the footprint of landfill areas
