Transcript of Impact of Recycling on Society

of Recycling on Society Pros of Recycling Cons of Recycling Recycling is BAD! Recycling is GOOD! BAD! GOOD! =( ^_^ The Middleground Solutions Solution #1 Recycling can have a
significant impact on
reducing our carbon
“if everyone in Birmingham
recycled one aluminum can
each week then it would
reduce CO2 emissions by
6,402 tonnes (which is the
equivalent of taking 226
cars off the roads) “(Patrice
Some recycling laws
punish those who simply
want to help
In Montreal a woman
received a“$628 ticket for
putting the recycling out the
night before it was
supposed to be collected”
(Monique Beaudin).
Recycling in Schools Solution #2 Starting a recycling program in school is one way more people can be encouraged to recycle and to reduce waste.

Put recycling bins in classrooms and in areas that create large amounts of recyclable waste such as:
Administrative offices- for computer paper, cardboard, and printer cartridges
Classrooms- for mixed papers, bottles, and cans
Cafeterias- for bottles, cans, cardboard, and plastics
Library/ Bookstore- for paper, magazines, newspapers, and books
Vending areas and throughout campus- for cans, plastics (bottles), and glass
Dormitories - mixed paper, glass, cans, plastic, and cardboard

Be sure to educate and inform everyone on campus.
Educate everyone on the importance of recycling
Inform them that the bins are available
Clearly label the bins and place them near trashcans
Recycling at school will encourage students and teachers to recycle at home because they will see how easy it is.

Other ways that students and teachers can make a difference besides recycling:
i. Minimize handouts
ii. Post assignments online
iii. Copy and print on both sides of the paper
i. Reuse school supplies
ii. Sell back textbooks
iii. Pack lunch in reusable containers
iv. Get a reusable water bottle

towards a healthier world but
it’s a necessary step (John)

* Recycling Centers could also
contribute a great deal
