Recycling Waste Treatment

This refers to the process used to convert waste materials into new materials thereby reducing the need for extracting new resources. The process begins with the collection of recyclable materials, they are then sorted and separated according to their type. In some cases these materials will need to be cleaned and prepped to remove contaminants. After this the manufacturing of new products begins. Recycled plastics can be used to produce new plastics, and recycled metal can be used in the production of new metal products. Recycling waste treatment helps minimize the amount of waste that ends up in landfills and lowers greenhouse gas emissions.
