Recycling has occurred in some shape or form throughout history, although early recycling was based totally on old products being re-used, especially metals such as iron and bronze.
Broken tools and weapons would be melted down to produce new ones.
However, our planet was not effected as dramatically as it has been since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution.
Now recycling is not just about re-using old and damaged goods to save natural resources, its about saving our planet due to the destruction caused by air, water and land pollution.
All these factors together effect climate change.
The polluting of our earths atmosphere, land and oceans is causing server damage to our planets ecological system.
Without recycling our planet will not in the further be able to sustain and support mankind and other lifeforms that currently inhabit and share the earth we live.
It was estimated that nearly 200 million tons of waste is generated every year.
Recyclable Products are on the Up!

Most by-products of a manufacturing process as well as all packaging materials can be recycled today. Even old oil can be re-fined for heating and lubrication, 5000 litres of old oil can produce 3500 litres of re-usable oil.
Other common recyclable products consist of organic material, metals, glass, plastic/rubber/ polystyrene and paper/card
