International Recycling Day

In many countries around the world celebrates on May 17th the International Day for Recycling. Although some organizations or Groups(related with reduce, reuse, recycle activities) around the world celebrates on May 15th the International Day for Recycling.

Recycling can be defined as the change of waste materials into new products to prevent wastage of potentially useful materials and reduce consumption of fresh raw materials. Its a key component in the modern waste reduce and is the third component of the 3R’s waste hierarchy.In a broad sense, it is a part of an ethic of resource efficiency.

Recycling is really just common sense. Until the ‘modern era ‘ , it was a common household activity. As per the need of the hour, recycling is back and thousands and thousands of recycled products are being made from materials that would otherwise be piling up in some corner of our homes. Almost every kind of material can be recycled in one way or the other.
