Our household and domestic waste usually ends up in landfills after collection from various sources. Approximately 30 000 tonnes of waste are produced by us everyday with only a minor 5% are recycled and re-purposed. The remaining 95% of the waste ends up in landfills around the country where even space for these landfills are diminishing. Available space for landfills are becoming scarce, more so with the intense competition from other industry sectors like property and infrastructure development or agriculture.
Although landfills are not inherently bad for the environment, it is a loss of land that could be used for other beneficial purposes. Landfilling household and domestic waste is also a waste of precious,non-renewable resources – especially for products that can be reused and recycled. Common products that are voraciously consumed are actually made out of resources that are depleting fast.
The solution to this difficult problem is recycling – it conserves our natural resources that are non-renewable and reduces the amount of rubbish that goes into our landfills, thus lengthening the lifespan of existing landfills.
Recycling is an excellent way of saving energy and conserving the environment.
Recycling 1 ton of plastic saves 7.4 cubic yards of landfill space
The energy saved by recycling a single plastic bottle is enough to power a 60-watt bulb for 6 hours
Recycling plastic saves twice as much energy as burning it in an incinerator
Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a TV for three hours
It takes about 400 years for aluminum to break down naturally
Aluminum can be recycled over and over without breaking down
The energy saved from recycling one glass bottle can run a 100-watt light bulb for four hours or a compact fluorescent bulb for 20 hours
Glass is 100% recyclable and can be used again and again
One tonnes of paper saves :
: 17 trees
