The irrational exploitation of natural resources by the economic development model that man has executed without any awareness, that nature’s services are limited and that these must be reincorporated back into the environment, the use of wood for production of paper requires the cutting of trees, as well as the use of energy, water, solid waste and environmental pollution that impacts on the health and quality of the environment.
Given the depletion of natural resources by the consumerism of the world population, the generation of solid waste by different sectors and pollution of the environment by the amount of garbage that exists on the planet, is that all humanity and societies must act to stop this environmental problem and reverse the damages that are deteriorating the quality of life of all citizens.
For this reason, all citizens must develop and implement strategies for the sustainable use of the elements air, water, soil, flora and fauna. That is, to promote the culture of recycling as an ecological strategy in the face of irresponsible consumption and exploitation that diminish the natural resources of the planet for future generations.
Recycling plays a fundamental role in combating this problem of depletion of environmental services, reducing the amount of waste, extending the life of landfills and keeping the environment free of any contamination. That is, recycling is the best strategy to conserve nature’s resources, where humanity must consciously use these goods without causing any impact on the natural environment.
Recycling is the way in which the waste generated by humanity is reused or renewed, to manufacture other materials. In itself, it is to take advantage of any waste, waste or garbage to give it a new value from a product that can be reused.
Instead of throwing away paper, cardboard, food, cans, glass and plastic bottles, it can be recycled to obtain another item, as well as to reduce contamination by waste and maintain natural resources.
Recycling has as its main objectives the saving of water, energy, conservation of natural resources, reduction of the amount of garbage, raw material and environmental pollution.
Recycling consists of several stages such as collection, which is the collection and transport of garbage, transfer plant, where larger quantities are transported, but very little is used, separation plant, where recyclables are classified and those that are not They can recycle and final valuation plant, where waste is recycled and used for various activities.
To recycle you must separate or classify the garbage in different containers according to the colors such as:
Yellow container: plastic bottle containers, cans, drinks, bags. Blue container: paper and cardboard containers. Green container: glass containers. Gray container: organic waste that decomposes easily. Red container: hazardous waste such as batteries, batteries or car oil. Orange container: cooking oil.
The materials that can be recycled are mainly glass, cardboard, paper, aluminum, plastic, textile, tetra pak, metals, food, batteries, among others, which allow minimizing the amount of waste in the environment.
It must be recycled to reduce the garbage that pollutes rural and urban spaces, streets, oceans, rivers, lakes, seas, plants, animals, ecosystems and all the elements that make up the environment. Also, because it saves energy, water, raw materials and natural resources, fighting global warming, climate change, the greenhouse effect and environmental pollution. In addition, new products and jobs are born, cutting down trees and consequently conserving the environment for a better quality of life.
To start this recycling process, one must consume responsibly and start recycling from home so that the process of collecting, separating, processing, marketing and developing a new product from useless objects is completed.
