Environmental Education Recycling

Waste, garbage, rubbish - It's the stuff that we throw away because we think it's unwanted or useless. Every day we produce waste and toss things out without considering where it will end up. Waste is becoming an increasing problem within our communities as our growing populations create more and more rubbish. The large amounts of waste being thrown away is putting pressure on landfill sites which are becoming harder and harder to find. It is therefore important to understand the waste management issues in your local environment and adopt practices and behaviours that improve the way you manage the rubbish you produce so as much recyclable material can be diverted from landfill as possible.
