Recycling is important to many people it makes the environment clean and saves energy. “The  waste hierarchy alludes to the "3 Rs" reduce, reuse and recycle, which group waste  administration methodologies as indicated by their attractive quality regarding waste  minimization (Japan, 2018).” The world population is growing and will continue to grow for  years and years. Each of those people that are coming on earth are throwing so much waste onto  the plants of their lifetime. “In New York alone, people produce enough trash in one day to fill  the entire Empire State building. The frustrating thing is, in most developed countries it’s not all  too difficult to make a difference. And what a difference we can make. If everyone repurposed  their copy of a single edition of  The New York Times , we could save 75,000 trees (Schenker,  2018).” One important thing that nobody ever thinks about when thinking about recycling is that, it saves energy. When new products are manufactured from the old materials is saves a lot of  energy which is by production. It also helps in preventing global climate change by reducing the  energy spent of production and greenhouse has emission. When we recycle, recyclable materials  are reprocessed into new products, and as a result the amount of rubbish sent to landfill sites  reduces. “There are over 1,500 landfill sites in the UK, and in 2001, these sites produced a  quarter of the UK’s emissions of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas (Veolia, 2018).”    Overall recycling is very important in so many ways. I find that recycling is obviously  very important if we wish to slow the destruction of this planet. We need to do more to increase  the amount of recycling that goes on in our country. We also need to find ways of recycling  items that are unhygienic and/or unsafe. Everybody can save so much money if they could

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
