Each year, Americans throw away tons of amounts of waste. Instead of sending the waste to the landfill, some practice recycling.
Recycling can be defined as a process that turns one manufactured product, such as paper or glass, into another product. Products are changed into new ones by mechanical or chemical methods. The positive effects of recycling are always told, however the challenges are just as important too.
