Over the past decade, concern about the environment has brought with it a massive increase in recycling in Australia and around the world. Recycling has become all the time more important part of our modern culture. Recycling is not a new concept. The practice of recycling has been around for thousands of years. The history of recycling started during the times of industrialization.During the time of production, massive waste materials come out. It will create the heavy loss. So from that time they think of reusing the waste products and recycling came to the practice.
Talking about the history of recycling of Australia, the first Australian paper mill was established in 1815. In the 1920s in Melbourne, waste paper …show more content…
(Omran, A2008). Another term to save the earth’s space is sustainability where sustainability means the capacity to improve the quality of human life while living by carrying the earth’s eco-systems. According to the David Suzuki, he puts that the people have to change the sacred stability of nature which has had a negative impact on both humans and other living systems (2016, pp-172)
Aims of the study
The aims of the study are as below:
i. To know to how important is recycling to people. ii. To understand the basic knowledge of people’s recycling views. iii. To know whether the people do recycling at home or not.
There are many data collection methods like an interview, questionnaire, sampling, scaling and many more. For this report, questionnaire method was chosen. Data is collected by primary as well as secondary method. Primary data are collected through questionnaire and secondary data are collected through internet, papers, book and so on.
Recycling is very important in this era because it helps to reduce the volume of waste materials that is being disposed of. There are many methods of doing a report but questionnaire method was chosen. It is easy and reliable survey. From the survey it is seen that many people have an idea of recycling and even
Recycling has been the environmental crusade to reducing the human footprint, with it’s spotlight shining down on in recent years. It was the noblest of causes, recycling being a great idea for the environment and society; but it is being handled poorly. Its modern descendant has turned into a corporate scheme with recycling becoming a business, instead of being about the environment because marketers are using environmentalism as a excuse for overconsumption, recycling products are only being recycled for profit, and cities & big business use inflated numbers to attain media attention. Let’s now take a look at the bread and butter of
Recycling is not a new concept. The history of recycling goes back thousands of years. According to the Environmental Encyclopedia article “Recycling”, published in 2011:
One of the biggest reasons recycling should be taken so serious is because of its positive affect on the environment. Without recycling, so many goods that have potential to be repurposed are thrown into landfills. These landfills are piled up and affect the lives of countless wildlife. This quote by Allen Hershkowitz shows the enormity of the helpfulness of recycling. “Because using recycled materials reduces the need to extract, process, refine, and transport the timber, crude petroleum, ores, and so on that are necessary for virgin-based paper, plastics, glass, and metals, recycling lessens the toxic air emissions, effluents, and solid wastes that these manufacturing processes create” (Hershkowitz). Not having to put the weight of everyone’s trash trash on the world’s land and instead, repurposing it into something usable saves so many resources. Recycling not only leaves more room for things where the trash would have gone, but it also means that the people living here will get farther with the resources they have. The more that is taken from the earth the less there will be for those in the future, so saving and taking care of what is here is very important. The ones living in the world today are the people who are get to decide how the people of the generations to come are going to live. People should not want their kids living in a world of filth and pollution where no one cares about the world they are living on. An article by Omid Nodoushani discussed in depth the terrible amounts of pollution that is
Recycling is a very essential and crucial process in our world today. The term recycling means that waste can be converted into new products instead of being discarded. As the population continues to grow, humans are using more and more products. In order to reduce the amount of waste on planet Earth, and to preserve its resources, recycling is significant. Not only does recycling allow the environment to thrive, but it also allows living people to thrive as well. There are many materials that can be recycled. Plastics, electronics, aluminum, food and glass are only but a few products that can be recycled. Recycling can benefit our environment in numerous amount of ways. However, without recycling, negative impacts on our environment can occur. Some of these effects include pollution whether it is air, land or sea, depletion of natural resources and even an increase threat to global warming. Therefore, recycling is extremely important to sustain our environment.
Over the years, recycling has been apart of the american community, but recycling has been costly and has been causing more pollution to the united states than recycling it self. I think that the recycling in the united states should be abolished because, the pollution produced by the collection trucks and the recycling process itself creates more emissions and it’s more expensive and takes more energy and water to recycle old paper than to cut down and process pine trees and then plant pine seedlings.
In Australia recycling is managed and organized by the Australian Council of Recycling (ACOR), and is overseen by the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities
Audience Relevance: Recycling is something most people choose to ignore. Recycling helps the world by reusing trash to make new products. As a result, this helps reduce the amount of trash that rot in landfills and pollution.
This article is about a study that conducted an experiment to college undergraduate student in order to show that recycling is not always a good option to have. The intended audience could be anyone for this article.
My teacher once told me that recycling was big in the 1990-200. Recycling was meant for saving items and to reuse them, the people at this time we're throwing away too much items that it was fillng up the streets, This makes life harder to live. Although many people thought that recycling was a bad idea and was going to be point less it's not because recycling makes new items out of old ones,You can throw out old items and it will be made into new ones, and it is chea to do.
Recycling is an important part of keeping this planet sustainable so our future generations can live on it. Many people are familiar with reprocessing paper and plastic materials, but there are countless others that can also be used. Our landfills are also filling up because too many people throw away these recyclable items that can easily be reused. Almost anyone has the ability to reduce, reuse, and recycle, but it is not always easily accessible which is why many people do not. Although there are some negatives to doing this, recycling is the best option we have when dealing with this problem. Too many non-decomposable items are being thrown away and it is harming the planet. The United States should make recycling mandatory in every state
There a lot of reasons why recycling is important in our community and especially at schools, hospitals, and in households. The success of a recycling depends on the active and continuous participation of people with the correct separation and collection of recyclable waste. Recycling is something that everyone can all do. Children that are school age and older can help out too. The goal is to stop tossing out items that can be use again and again. Recycling in schools help to improve the environment and can reduce money spent by the school on waste disposal. Paper is the main form of waste created by schools, making up
During the 1900s, Americans realized the amount of waste they produce and the damage that comes along with it. Average people see recycling as a simple process. Placing items such as glass, plastics, aluminum, and paper on their curb or dropping them off at recycling centers takes part of their weekly routine. However, many lack knowledge as to what happens to their products after this step. Intricate, but crucial, recycling helps improve our environment.
By recycling, people save half or more of the money they spend a year. An example is instead of buying a new case of water bottles every week, you can reuse them, which saves you more money that you can spend on things that you do need. In the article, the author stated, “Choosing sustainable materials for a product, streamlining the production process, and reducing the need for packaging all result in significant cost savings for the manufacturer.” This statement supports the fact that you should support recycling because it saves you money because the author explains that by recycling businesses save
These days, our earth has been filled by a lot of waste. There is a lot of garbage, plastic waste, and electronic waste. We always produce it and dump it when we need the new one. Our waste are piling up and continuously accumulating. Plastic waste is one of the biggest problems for us now. And our solution in this problem is recycling. In my opinion, recycling is a way to manage used items into new products. We can reduce, reuse, and recycling (3R) waste management (Peter, 2013). We can reduce our waste clothes with reuse it. There are some reasons why peoples recycle used or unwanted items, which are, prevent wasting unusable materials that still have usage after recycled, reduce the application of raw materials, reduce energy
In general, there are several methods for data collection and the different data collection methods provided its own advantages and disadvantages (Sekaran 2003, p. 223). For carrying out the data collection, the appropriate methods should be applied. In the research, the data collection could be done through the interview, for example, face-to-face and telephone interview. To collect the data by using interview technique, the questionnaire is commonly employed as the instrument for gathering data, the questionnaire could be able to distribute by mail or electronic mail. In addition, the data collection could be conducted by observation of individuals with or without audio or video recording. Before choosing the methods for data collection the expertise of the researcher, the degree of accuracy required, time and resources must be taken into consideration. Thus,
