Benefits of recycling

Recycling turns used materials, which otherwise would simply be treated as waste, into very valuable resources. Collecting recyclable fractions such as used bottles, cans, newspapers, construction waste, and timber and so on; and taking them to a collection facility such as West Coast Environmental Service, is the first step in a series of steps that generates loads of financial, environmental and social benefits. Some of these benefits accrue both locally and globally, and are describe below:
  • Recycling protects and expands manufacturing jobs and increase Scotland’s competitiveness.
  • Reduces the need for landfill and the incineration process.
  • Prevents pollution caused by the production of virgin materials.
  • Saves energy.
  • Reduces emissions of greenhouse gases that contribute to climate and global change.
  • Saves on natural resources such as the use of wood, water and minerals.
  • Helps maintain and protect the environment for future generations.
For all these reasons, recycling is a key component of modern waste reduction and is the third component of the ’Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’ waste hierarchy that Westcoast Enviromental Services Centre supports.
