This article analyzes the other side of the existence of trash. Nowdays, there are a lot of trash and its kinds around us. Some people think that the trash is only something unuseful, but behind all, the trash can be changed becomes something new and useful by recycling. Recycling is a process on change the trash becomes something new that is more useful for the one who does that or for the society. As we know, the trashes around us are increasing until there isnâ€™t enough place for it. So, there must be an action to solve the problem, it means that there must be more entrepeneurs who focus ...view middle of the document...
The other trash around us also comes from the waste of factory. We know all know that our earth now days is full with many kinds of factories. The industrialists do their industrialization activities and those leave the waste. Not all of industrialists care about the effects of the waste if they do not accommodate it well. Some of them who do not care about their waste, they put it mistakenly as they want in which it can give bad effects in many sectors.
So, there must be some ways to solve the trash problems. Actually, there some ways to accommodate the too much trash around us and one of them is recycling the trash. Recycling is a process using materials into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials. Recycling involves processing used materials into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from land filling) by reducing the need for "conventional" waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emissions as compared to virgin production (Wikipedia, Recycling) .
Not all of trash needs to be recycled by people helps. There must be grouping on handling the trash problems. On recycling, the grouping is based on the kinds of the trash in its nature. There are two kinds of trash based on its nature. First, organic trash and the second is inorganic trash. Organic trash is trash that can be degradable in which it doesnâ€™t need to be recycled by people helps because it can be degradable by natural process. The example of organic trash is dry leaf. The trash that needs to be recycled is the inorganic trash in which it can not be degradable by natural process but it need people helps in the recycle process. The examples of the inorganic trashes are paper, plastic, etc.
By recycling, we can use the trash to make something new and more interesting. For example, we can make handcraft by using the trash of newspaper. In a strict sense, recycling of a material would produce a fresh supply of the same material, for example used office paper to more office paper, or used foamed polystyrene to more polystyrene (Wikipedia, Recycling).
Most people never think about the trash, it means that they think that it is only something unuseful in which they only choose to put it in the wastebasket and then leave it. But there are also creative people who try to find something good behind the unuseful thing, the trash. They have found that the trash has other side behind its unusefulness in which they take the trashes from the wastebasket then make something new by recycling the trashes.
The people who have knew about the benefits of recycling, they use the situation as well as they can by doing the recycling and get the benefits. The benefits of recycling are it saves natural resources, it saves energy, it saves our Environment, and it is also a good...
