produce solid waste, and it is our responsibility to deal with our waste in safe, cost-effective, and
environmentally sensitive ways.
And according to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency In
2009, the per capita generation of waste was 4.34 pounds per person per day and total waste
generation was 243.0 million tons. We realize that there is no single solution to the challenge of
solid water disposal today.
And the problems worsen each year as the U.S. population increases.
However, a combination of source reduction, reuse, recycling is currently may be the optimal
way to manage solid waste because the United States generated more solid water, per capita, than
any other country.
All of the people want to reduce the amount of waste as much as possible, and they think
that recycling is one of the best ways to prevent our waste problem because of some reasons;
recycling can save energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and generate jobs.
are also some negative effects of recycling, and in this paper, I will be more focus on the
negative effects of recycling to make people aware that
they still cannot consume too many
products because recycling still cannot help much to solve our waste problem.
electronic waste can pose a risk to human health, and the cost to recycle is just too expensive to
be a viable solution.
First reason is, electronic recycling can pose a risk to human health. Nowadays,
tend to easily get bored
with their old electronic stuffs, like computer, television, and radio
rapidly improving technology, and also because of a consumer thirst for all the latest
; so, they tend to buy new electronics.
After they buy their new electronics, they are
going to wonder “what should I do with the old ones?”, and the possible answer is recycling.
