There are a lot of myths revolving round recycling like it takes up more energy and also it is more expensive. However, these are quite untrue. Usually those who do not believe in it use examples like transportation of material from one place to another to recycle might be an expensive preposition. It is would be wise to recycle them by using at localized places to avoid unwarranted expenses. If planned wisely, a lot of money can be saved in the long run. It is important to bust some of these myths about recycling.
It is a belief that transportation of recycling materials leads to huge amount of pollution.
It is a fact that there is less number of reprocessors in the country for recycling of materials and there is certain amount of transportation costs and pollution involved, but with more number of markets developing and more local reprocessing, recycling materials is more effective.
Therefore, recycling makes more sense as compared developing more raw material as it is more expensive and also leads to more pollution. It is important to change the mind set of people across the globe about the benefits of recycling and clear any myths revolving around it to ensure more processing of recyclable materials.
The myth that recycling is more expensive than throwing trash has recently been busted.
In reality collection of trash is quite expensive but the cost of landfill has been subsidized. However, with more landfills being filled up and introduction of landfill costs, recycling of material and using skip bins are more cost effective.
