Recycling At Our School


What is Recycling?

The definition of Recycle is a convert (waste) into reusable material. It is also a return (material) to previous stage in a cyclic process. Something you can  "use again". Recycling is processing used materials (waste) into new, useful products. This is done to reduce the use of raw materials that would have been used. Recycling also uses less energy and a great way of controlling air, water and land pollution. Effective recycling starts with household (or the place where the waste was created).
