Why recycle

Recycling.. What is it?

Recycling is the process of converting waste materials into reusable objects to prevent waste of useful materials. Recyclable materials include many kinds of glass, paper and cardboard, metal, plastic, tires, textiles and electronics.

Recycling.. Why do it?

Recycling is a great way for us to reduce the level of natural resources we remove from our land. The more we take now, the less for our children’s futures. The more we learn to recycle now the less we will use land fill refuse sites that destroy and pollute our countryside.

Recycling.. Why save our trees?

Trees purify the very air that we breathe. They help the planet breathe by turning carbon dioxide into clean, pure oxygen. We must save the trees we have left to preserve the air quality left for our children.

Recycling.. Where to start?

Recycling starts with you! Instead of throwing away your household or industrial waste, take a minute to think….. Can I put my tins to one side and maybe my bottles to another? Great, now when I pass by my nearest recycle centre I can drop in my saved recyclables and feel pleased that I have contributed to a sustainable future for my children and fellow citizens of Zambia.
