1) INTRODUCTION
WHAT IS RECYCLING?
It is the process of taking materials that would be tossed away, most likely ending up in landfills, and reusing them. Recyclable materials are typically broken down into their raw components and then made into new products.

2) TYPES OF RECYCLING
a) Plastic
- process of recovering scrap or waste plastics and reprocessing the material

b) Glasses
- process of turning waste glass into usable products. Glass waste should be separated by chemical composition, and then, depending on the end use and local processing capabilities, might also have to be separated into different colors.

c) Aluminium
- shredded and ground into small pieces
- recycling aluminium saves 95% of the energy cost of processing new aluminium.

d) Paper
- process of recovering scrap or waste plastics and reprocessing the material into useful products

e) Fibre & textiles
- most textiles are composites of cotton and synthetic plastics
