What is recycling?

Recycling is the process of recovering reusable materials and sending them to specialist facilities where they can be recycled into raw materials. The recycled raw material can be used in the manufacture of new goods.

Recycling is beneficial as it saves perfectly good material from being sent to landfill. In addition, it saves on the amount of raw material that is taken from natural resources, meaning that we deplete resources less quickly.
