Recycling


Recycling

Recycling is good because  In a manufacturing process without recycling, a natural resource (trees, iron ore, bauxite ore, silica, etc.) is extracted, processed, manufactured into sellable consumer products, consumed, and then discarded – typically into a landfill or combustion facilityAlthough manufacturing facilities oftentimes have the greatest potential for recycling opportunities and good paybacks they are also prone to delaying or ignoring the benefits.  Just the initial stages of gathering data can be a huge task for some depending upon the size of the facility but usually the larger the task is for preparation the larger the paybacks will be.  The trend for implementation of recycling programs at manufacturing facilities is definitely on the rise.  There are many ways for encouraging recycling at manufacturing plants regardless of whether the facility is big or small.  Aside from the direct monetary paybacks there are tremendous streamlining benefits that are also gained. Many of the waste materials that are generated in the manufacturing process such as paper, plastics and metals & Old tires can be recycled and recovered.

For a recycling program to work, having a large, stable supply of recyclable material is crucial. Three legislative options have been used to create such a supply: mandatory recycling collection, container deposit legislation, and refuse bans. Mandatory collection laws set recycling targets for cities to aim for, usually in the form that a certain percentage of a material must be diverted from the city's waste stream by a target date. The city is then responsible for working to meet this target.

Old tires are a global environmental problem. What's the best way to dispose of them?

Tire recycling or rubber recycling is the process of recyclingvehicles' tires (or tyres) that are no longer suitable for use on vehicles due to wear or irreparable damage (such as punctures). These tires are among the largest and most problematic sources of waste, due to the large volume produced and their durability.

Again, recycling and manufacturing programs can seem daunting to implement but the benefits to business and the environment as well as huge cost savings through government incentives and general bottom line gains are well worth the effort.

An Example 

Old tires are a global environmental problem. What's the best way to dispose of them? Most end up being burned as fuel to generate electricity in cement factories, because tires provide more energy than coal.
