As the three arrows of the international recycling symbol show, recycling involves three distinct steps:
The separation and collection of recyclable materials,
The processing and manufacturing of these materials into new products and,
The purchase and use of recycled products.
Household & Workplace Recycling
Your household and your workplace can participate in recycling not only by separating and collecting recyclable materials from the waste stream, but also by purchasing and using recycled products. Always try to buy products that bear one of these two symbols.
