RotoTank™ Helping You Understand Recycling
What does Recycle Mean?
“The action or process of converting waste into reusable materials”
Why do we Recycle?
Recycling reduces the need for extracting, refining, and processing raw materials all of which create air and water pollution. As recycling saves energy it also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which helps to tackle climate change.
How do we recycle?
To recycle all your home or work waste you will require at least four containers to store the waste in. You will then need to split the waste materials in to the four categories, being Paper, Glass, Cans, Plastic. Then you will need to either wait for your local waste disposal company to collect or take to your local depot.

The Garbage Crisis
The world has changed a great deal in the past century. From individually packed food servings to disposable diapers, the world population generates more waste now than ever before. This waste goes mostly to landfills, where it is compacted and buried. As the waste stream continues to grow, so will the pressures on our landfills, our resources, and our environment.
How can I help?
The more we recycle, the less garbage winds up in our landfills and incineration plants. By reusing aluminium, paper, glass, plastics, and other materials, we can save production and energy costs, and reduce the negative impacts that the extraction and processing of virgin materials has on the environment.
