The Importance of Recycling

Commercial Plastic Recycling is proud to offer local recycling center services to encourage recycling across the community. Recycling is integral for facilitating the transition to a circular economy and lowering the impact of a commodity’s lifecycle on the environment. It is an important contributor to the American economy and is vital to preserving resources and conserving the environment. The Recycling Economic Information (REI) Report 2020 identified that the recycling sector across the United States provides 757,000 jobs and $36.6 billion in wages in a single year. For every 1,000 tons of materials recycled, this translates to supporting 1.57 jobs.


Most Americans recognize the importance of recycling but are limited by the infrastructure available to them. The Draft National Recycling Strategy outlines the need for a more robust and efficient community solid waste recycling network:

FAQ

How to recycle plastic bags?

Plastic bags are one of the most difficult types of plastic waste to recycle, mainly because they are single-use bags and in most curbside recycling programs they are not accepted. This is a huge issue for the environment as 100 billion plastic bags are used every year in the US alone.

The best way to recycle plastic bags is to take them to local grocery stores, or big box stores like Target or Walmart, which have specific bins for this type of plastic, or you can search for plastic bag recycling locations near you at: www.plasticfilmrecycling.org

It is essential to wash and dry all plastic waste, including single-use bags, before depositing them in the recycling, because if the bags contain food scraps, or some other source of bacteria, they contaminate the entire batch in which they are deposited, and cannot be recycled.

What is the most profitable metal to recycle?

Scrap recycling is one of the least popular in the United States even though most metals can be recycled and there are even some that have a high market value. The recycling of scrap metal is very important since by reusing metals we mitigate the exploitation of minerals, which are a limited resource, and their extraction generates a significant amount of greenhouse gasses.

Most of the waste can be left in the local recycling centers and received payment for it, in this way we avoid this waste ends up in landfills, where it would take hundreds of years to degrade.

Some of the metals that can be sold at recycling centers are copper (which is the best-valued metal on the market), aluminum, brass, lead, iron, and bronze. You can find these materials in all kinds of household waste such as; wires, pipes, kitchen sinks, food cans, soda cans, window frames, door locks, chandeliers and hinges, old jewelry, children’s toys, lamps, and tools.

Although almost most of the metals are recycled, some cannot be reused or that recycling centers do not receive, such as those used for paint or toxic products, some pipes, clothes hangers, and metal scraps, so it’s always best to check directly with your local recycling center.

How to recycle old clothes?

The fashion industry has become the second most polluting in the world, only behind the big oil companies. The environmental impact of the textile industry extends throughout its “commercial ecosystem”: from production, distribution, and exhibition to acquisition, care, and washing processes and, finally, its disposal. In the United States, more than 12 million tons of clothing are dumped in landfills annually.

Clothing and textiles are 100% recyclable, but only 15% are recycled in the United States. To recycle clothing, it is best to first consider whether it can have a second life and if so, give it away, donate it or take it to a second-hand store, always clean and dry to prevent the spread of bacteria, viruses, and fungi.

When it comes to clothes that are already in very poor condition or pieces of fabric that can no longer be reused, it is best to take them to a collection point that accepts this type of waste. At recycling centers for textiles, clothing is turned into fiber and used to make new products, such as padding, rubber-coated playgrounds, and some materials for the automotive industry.

How does recycling help our environment?

The production of human waste increases year by year. This vast amount of trash has formed islands hundreds of thousands of miles long in the oceans. There is so much litter that ends up in the oceans and on land that it has entered the food chain, greatly damaging biodiversity.

One way to reduce the amount of human waste is recycling in recycling centers; by lengthening the useful life of materials and preventing them from ending up in landfills, but also avoiding the production of new materials and thereby avoiding the over-exploitation of raw materials and the pollution that comes with the extraction of materials and their production.

Where to take electronics for recycling?

Electronic waste, also known as e-waste, is all parts of electronic devices or broken devices, such as household appliances, televisions, electric stoves, air conditioners, microwaves, radios, computers, mobile phones, batteries, hard drives, motherboards, circuits, monitors, etc., that we discard.

Most e-waste contains a series of highly polluting materials, including heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, lead, chromium, arsenic or antimony, which not only harm the environment, but are also highly dangerous for human health.

The best way to dispose of electronic waste is by recycling. Electronic waste contains precious metals including gold, silver, copper, platinum, and palladium, as well as significant amounts of iron, aluminum, and plastics, which can be recycled. Giving away electronic devices that are no longer needed is always the best option, but if it is a product that cannot be repaired, it is important to deposit it at a local recycling center that accepts electronic waste. Recycling centers reclaim many of the materials from which these products are made, including plastics, glass, metal, and aluminum that can be recovered and reused in new electronics.
