About Recycling

Provided By:

The recycling circle begins with collecting and processing secondary materials, which then become ingredients in recycled-content products. When consumers choose recycled products, they create a loop that ensures the overall success and value of recycling. Recycled-content products are made from materials that would otherwise have been discarded. Items in this category are made totally or partially from material destined for disposal or recovered from industrial activities - like aluminum soda cans or newspaper. Recycled-content products also can be items that are rebuilt or remanufactured from used products, such as toner cartridges or computers. According to the EPA, there are more than 4,500 recycled-content products available, ranging from aluminum cans, car bumpers and newspapers to carpeting, motor oil and laundry detergent bottles. Postconsumer content refers to material from recycled products that were used by consumers or businesses and would otherwise be discarded as waste. If a product is labeled "recycled content," some of the product material might not be postconsumer content collected through a local recycling program, but may have come from excess or damaged items generated during normal manufacturing processes. Recyclable products can be collected and remanufactured into new products after they've been used. These products do not necessarily contain recycled materials and only benefit the environment if people recycle them after use. Check with your local recycling program to determine which items are recyclable in your community. Source: www.epa.gov/epaoswer/non-hw/muncpl/buyrec.htm
