Recycling is the process of taking a product after use and using all or part of it to make another product. Recycling is a simple, but effective way to start to helping out the environment. Many items that can be recycled are items made from materials such as aluminum, plastic water bottles, glass and certain kinds of paper.
82 million tons of materials are recycled in the United States. 53.4 % of all paper products are being recycled. Each person produces 4.6 lbs. of trash per day in the United States.
