Recycle & Reuse

Recycle & Reuse

Who says that China citizens do not know how about the 3Rs. In this picture alone, they had recycle the old woven chair to become a rubbish dump and reuse the fruits skin as the rubbish.
Someone living here must be loving banana and oranges until there is not enough space in their rubbish

Recyclable materials, also called "recyclables" or "recyclates", may originate from a wide range of sources including the home and industry. They include glass, paper, aluminium, asphalt, iron, textiles and plastics. Biodegradable waste, such as food waste or garden waste, is also recyclable with the assistance of micro-organisms through composting or anaerobic digestion.

Recyclates need to be sorted and separated into material types. Contamination of the recylates with other materials must be prevented to increase the recyclates value and facilitate easier reprocessing for the ultimate recycling facility. This sorting can be performed either by the producer of the waste or within semi- or fully-automated materials recovery facilities.
