Recycling still shouldn't be the default option in my opinion. Yes, it is better than just throwing things away but I maintain that it should be the last resort: reduce, reuse and *then* recycle

Asking that questions is a waste of energy. Even if it weren't efficient it's caught on so much now there's no way you'd stop people from recycling.

Aluminum only takes sixty days to go from can into another form.
I recycle all alumimum cans. When I return my cans for deposit, I help my household's bottom line.

Recycling is a very good idea and is is an very good initiative that would reduce energy costs. More projects should be implemented in the near future. I also recommend the readers to visit the website http://investmentsinenergy.com since it a lot of info regarding transformation of waste to energy methods. Hope the articles published in the website would be helpful for you.

erm yeah right. The ammount of energy needed to produce a new product from the stuff removed from the ground is even greater than that needed to recycle something into a new product. Besides, recycling off-sets the cost of extraction from the ground, which due to our insatiable appetite for consumer goods, is resulting in the earth becomming devoid of resources (see oil prices, gold prices, steel prices, copper prices etc). The mroe we recycle, the less costs for raw materials will rise.

Why is it green

I disagree! Recycling is a process that maintains the balance of our living, thus making it a part of the energy flow. It greatly preserve our natural resources and improves waste management.

Recycling is not a waste of energy. It serves as a recreational activity that will help us in many ways. It is not only creating an improvement to a waste but it also give us chances to widen our mind to create something new.

 Marshall @ Composter

I do not know the exactly. But one thing that I know is save energy and use natural resources like sunlight and wind power. Compost bins also good to decompose wastage.

Save drink holders to corral used cans and bottles. Wrap newspapers with twine and then simply stack them. Plastic lids and caps are generally made of a different material than their containers and need to be sorted separately.

I think recycling is a important thing to do today. You can use any recycled materials again and you can help protect mother nature too. It is not a waste of energy because you help your world to be a trash free world.

Recycling is not a waste of time and more people should do it. We recycle carpets and rugs on a regular basis and our waste gets turned in to new products and that cannot be a bad thing.
