The Importance of Recycling

20th December 2017

At Allied Plant, we care about the environment, and recycling is one of the best ways to make a positive impact on the planet, both to the natural environment and to humanity. Recycling starts at home, so simply having a separate bin for your plastics and paper is a great start!

Environmental Importance

The main importance of recycling is; to make the environment clean, conserve materials, save energy, and reduce Garbage in Landfills.

Due to the harmful chemicals released from waste in landfill sites, recycling helps to reduce the pollution caused by the rubbish, converting them back into new products.

By doing this we are also contributing to helping global warming and deforestation, which is affected by pollution. By recycling, we can reduce the need for raw materials so that rainforests can be preserved.

Human Importance

It’s important to think of the people and places around the world affected by the environment. Firstly, by recycling, the economy will save a huge amount of money as making products from raw materials costs much more than if they were made from recycled products.

Secondly, increased pollution affects the health of the population. Recycling can help reduce pollution, preventing risks such as heart disease, lung cancer and respiratory diseases.

And, as recycling reduces the need for raw materials it also uses less energy, preserving natural resources for the future.
