Recycling Centers

If you need to dispose of your recyclable products, then you will most likely be taking them to a recycling center. Their guidelines help people who are in need of waste management. While they probably won’t be able to take specialty recyclable items such as scrap metal, they will take simple but bulky items like stacks of paper and plastic. These are some terms that you should know when recycling.

  • Waste Hierarchy - This refers to the universal recycling symbol, the three arrows chasing each other, and their meaning. They stand for: recycle, reuse, and reduce. This is representational of our recycling system and, if followed, can greatly reduce waste products.
  • Recycling Center - A center meant for people to drop off their recycling products such as plastic, aluminum, bottles, glass, cardboard, and other such materials. For things such as a computer, battery, or other electronic devices, depending on your area, there may be separate locations to recycle them or even a city service will pick them up from your home. Waste - There are tons of products that cannot be recycled; those are what are called waste products. Not everything that is not labeled with the recycling symbol isn’t recyclable; for instance, scrap metal can be recycled.
  • Recycling Bin - These bins are usually found next to garbage cans in public places. You can throw all of your recyclable items in these bagged disposal bins, but for some of the bulkier items such as cardboard boxes and other packaging items, it’s probably best to stick them in a larger disposal container.
