Recycling as an Effective Measure

Recycling as an Effective Measure
In these times, more solid wastes are produced compared to a decade ago. The accumulation of wastes increased every day. This situation may pose a threat to our quality of life. The invention of polymers intensifies the problem. Recycling-a process of changing waste into useful products has been proposed to solve this problem. But how well does this method works?An influential advantage of recycling is in reducing the use of natural resources in manufacturing goods. The wastes created can be reprocessed to form other useful products such as toiletries from waste papers. Furthermore, less energy is needed on new products. This measure can indirectly cut down the amount of greenhouse gases released into the environment. As a result, less rubbish is produced by the citizens. Rubbish management has become easier. Recycling is widely believed to bring business opportunities to the area. Some valuable metals can be extracted for sale such as electronic wastes.

However, what some people are arguing is that recycling brings more disadvantages than advantages. Recycled products are generally accepted as low quality products compared to products made from virgin materials. Some people find it troublesome to transport the wastes to recycling centres. In addition to that, some wastes are difficult to be recycled such as plastic and electronic wastes. This is because toxic gases may be emitted by the burning of certain substances such as tyres.

In my opinion, our natural resources should be used wisely to reduce the rate of depletion of the resources. Recycling should be endorsed by the government as an effort to reduce land wastes. Collaboration between the public and the government is the ultimate factor contributes to the success of relentless recycling campaigns.
