Card / Paper / Metal

Recycling is a vital component of a circular economy, where products and materials are reused, repaired, or recycled to minimise waste and promote sustainability.

Recycling these materials helps conserve natural resources

Recycling card, paper, metal, and electrical materials (WEE) is essential for several reasons:

  • Conservation of Resources: Recycling these materials helps conserve natural resources. For instance, recycling paper reduces the need for cutting down trees, while recycling metals minimises the need for mining and refining raw ores. Conserving these resources is crucial for sustainable development.
  • Energy Savings: Recycling typically requires less energy than producing products from raw materials. For example, recycling aluminium uses about 95% less energy than bauxite ore production. Using less energy can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change.
  • Reduction of Waste: Recycling helps divert materials from landfills and incinerators, reducing the amount of waste accumulating in the environment. Landfills can be harmful to the ecosystem and contribute to pollution.
  • Reduced Pollution: Properly recycling these materials can reduce pollution. For instance, recycling paper reduces the need for toxic chemicals in papermaking, and recycling metals can prevent harmful mining by-products from contaminating soil and water sources.
  • Economic Benefits: Recycling creates jobs and stimulates the economy. It supports industries involved in collecting, processing, and manufacturing recycled materials.
  • Conservation of Space: Landfills are not infinite, and by recycling, we can extend the lifespan of existing landfills and save valuable space.
  • Reduction of Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Recycling reduces the need for energy-intensive processes used in the extraction and manufacturing of raw materials, lowering greenhouse gas emissions associated with these processes.
  • Waste Reduction: Recycling helps to decrease the overall amount of waste generated, which is essential in waste management efforts.
  • Prevention of Wildlife Harm: Recycling reduces the need for new materials, thereby reducing the negative impacts of mining and logging on wildlife habitats.
  • Promoting Circular Economy: Recycling is a vital component of a circular economy, where products and materials are reused, repaired, or recycled to minimise waste and promote sustainability.
