18
Learning Objectives
  • Understand the recycling process.
  • Understand the importance of recycling.
  • Identify ways in which people can make a
    difference through recycling.
  • Identify items that can be recycled.
  • Understand the composting process.

19
Populations and Waste
  • When populations increase so does the amount of
    waste.
  • This makes recycling a necessity

20
Why recycle?
  • What are the advantages to recycling?
  • What are the disadvantages to recycling?
  • Which one outweighs or is more important than the
    other?

21
What is recycling?
  • Reusing a product or creating a new product from
    waste
  • Creates new products from broken down and
    reprocessed products

22
Why is recycling so important?
  • Saves energy
  • Reduces landfill waste
  • Conserves natural resources
  • Creates jobs

23
Importance of Recycling
  • Saves money
  • Reduces pollution (air, land, water)
  • Reduces demand for incineration of waste

24
What can we do to help?
  • Recycle everything that can be recycled.
  • Know what items that can be recycled and where
    they can be recycled.

25
Recyclable Items
  • 1. Aluminum
  • a. About two-thirds of all aluminum cans in the
    United States are recycled
  • 2. Paper products
  • a. Nearly half of all wastepaper in the United
    States is recycled
  • 3. Glass
  • a. separate the colors
  • b. Colored glass should not be mixed with clear
    glass

26
Recyclable Items
  • 4. Plastic
  • a. It typically takes 200 to 400 years to decay
    in a landfill
  • b. Plastic items contain codes and must be sorted
    by these codes

27
What should I know about plastics?
  • These codes are number which are usually on the
    bottom of the item
  • Lower the number the easier it is to recycle
  • Higher the number the harder it is to recycle
  • So, it is best to try to use items that have
    lower numbers

28
Recyclable Items
  • 5. Metals
  • Such as cars
  • 6. Motor oil
  • Refined and reused
  • 7. Electronics

29
What is reusing?
  • A. Using a product again without remanufacturing
  • B. A form of recycling
  • C. Reusing water bottles, bags and containers

30
Remanufacturing
  • A. Making a previously used product into another
    product
  • B. A form of recycling

31
Remanufacturing
  • Aluminum, plastic, steel and glass can be melted
    down and reformed

32
How can you help?
  • Practice the four Rs
  • Reduce
  • Reuse
  • Recycle
  • Rebuy

33
Reduce
  • Try to reduce waste
  • Give away or donate unwanted items
  • Compost food/yard waste

34
Reduce
  • Use paper on both sides
  • Borrow things that you dont use very often,
    instead of buying them
  • Avoid disposable utensils, cups, and plates

35
Reuse
  • Use items more than once
  • Pack lunches in reusable container
  • Reuse food storage containers
  • Artwork can be made from used materials

36
Rebuy
  • Purchase recycled materials
  • Such as recycled paper
  • Buying recycled items completes the cycle

37
Remember
  • If you do not buy recycled products it defeats
    the purpose of recycling

38
Compost
  • A waste management technique
  • Used to improve physical properties of soil
  • Mixture of greens and browns

39
Compost
  • Greens (nitrogen) grass clippings, vegetables,
    coffee grounds,
  • Browns (carbon) leaves, straw, sawdust, twigs
  • A mixture of decomposed organic matter

40
Compost
  • Organic matter within the compost can vary
  • Decomposers are microbes such as bacteria and
    fungi
  • Other decomposers are earthworms

41
Compost
  • Key components to compost
  • Mixture organic matter
  • Water (must be kept moist)
  • Oxygen
  • Decomposers
  • Increases decomposition

42
Need to be able to
  • Identify items that can be recycled
  • Explain the importance of recycling
  • Identify ways people make a difference by
    recycling
  • Explain the four Rs and give examples
  • Explain composting

43
Remember the four Rs
  • Practicing the four Rs anyone can make a
    difference
  • Reduce
  • Reuse
  • Recycle
  • Rebuy
