What is Recycling?
Recycling is a sustainable and eco-friendly method of reusing resources and raising product quality. By substituting raw material inputs and rerouting waste outputs outside of the economic system, it seeks to promote environmental sustainability.
Why should we Recycle?
Recycling helps in reducing the volume of solid waste dumped in landfills, freeing up space for the trash that cannot be recycled and conserving the resources.
According to Gulf Business, an average resident in the UAE generates nearly 3kg of waste every day, which is among the highest amounts per capita in the world.
If we do not recycle waste, it ends up in the landfills and it takes hundreds of years for the dumped materials to degrade. Many materials like glass, never decomposes and remains in the landfills forever. The world is already overpopulated and eventually we may run out of space.
Many useful materials that can be recycled and converted as raw material for a new product ends up in landfills if we don’t recycle. By recycling, we are also reusing the energy and resources they hold and is giving a second chance instead of ending up in landfills. Natural resources are not infinite, recycling protects the resources.
How does Recycling Help the Environment?
Recycling not only limits the release of waste to the surrounding but also lowers the emission of greenhouse gases, water pollutants and, it can even conserve energy. Reusing the recovered material to produce new products will lower the waste generation.
Buying recycled material is safe for the environment as it limits our reliance on natural resource for the need of virgin raw materials.
How Does Recycling Reduce Emissions and Waste Products?
Producing goods from recycled materials requires less energy than producing goods from virgin materials, which results in a reduction in the burning of fossil fuels and the release of greenhouse gases (GHGs) that contribute to climate change. Also, using recycled materials to make new products will reduce the need of virgin materials and thereby reduces the amount of waste materials entering the landfill. As a result, more products may be supplied because it reduces the expenses associated with manufacturing. Consumers benefit from the cheaper goods as a result, and producers continue to produce a larger quantity.
How the Circular Economy Functions?
A circular economy is an economic model that encourages the reduction of waste while keeping the value of resources as high and long-lasting as feasible.
At YES Full Circle Solutions, we ensure that the materials that we collect, is not landfilled, but is used back, as recovered raw materials into a circular economy production process. Here are some examples of circular economy production process:
- PET plastic is typically made from crude oil and meant for one-time use. After that, it must be recycled and shredded into pellets that can be melted and used to make new bottles.
- Used paper is shredded and pulped to produce new recycled papers. Recycling paper products allows more trees to stand.
- Glass waste materials are crushed to cullet which can be melted and used to make new glass products. That’s exactly how the circular economy works.
Similarly, for almost every product, a circular economy is possible. Instead of discarding the material in landfills, where it takes years to degrade, it can be converted to become a resource for another, this way our goal must be to recycle.
Recycling of Waste Material Type
- Paper & Cardboard Recycling
- Metal Recycling
- Glass Recycling
- Plastic Recycling
- Fabric & Textile Recycling
- E-Waste Recycling
- Personal Care and Cosmetics Recycling
Waste Isn’t Waste Until We Waste It!
YES Full Circle’s vision is to divert waste from the landfill and increase recycling to recreate useful products from the trash, hereby reducing the use of virgin products during the manufacturing process.
RECYCLING IS IMPORTANT AND AN EXCELLENT WAY TO TAKE CARE OF OUR EARTH
Be in the direction of goal to protect our environment by creating new goods from the recycled materials
