Recycling: What do people do in your area?

More and more cities, governments, and individuals are becoming concerned about protecting our environment and resources. However, for the individual citizen, what do people in your area do (or DON'T do) to recycle at home. Personally, we collect our newspapers for the week and take them to a local school down the street where they collect them for recycling. Furthermore, we also put some of our leftover food (e.g., banana peels, egg shells, vegetables, etc.) outside in a special box that turns the scraps into soil for our garden.

So, what about you and people in your area? What can we do more to protect our future?

Not many people in my area are concerned about recycling, so there are not many opportunities to be concerned even if you want to. For example, the schools collect paper for recycling only twice a year and not with a big enthusiasm. And to find another place where to take newspapers or other things for recycling is difficult. Though, we have special machines for used plastic bottles everywhere. I've never seen anybody except alchoholics and homeless people using them, but I do use)) Plus in our dacha we also have a special box for compost.

Here in town, Ciudad Juarez,we don't have a specific plan, we can recycle the garbage, in organic,inorganic,plastic,aluminium,etc...,and some places do, is a culture.
We can save energy turning off the lights that we are not using, I don't know we need take action about this concern. The planet is our enviroment,is all we have,is our home, the global warming for example is the red light now, we need to be aware and take big actions.

To save the environment, I try to buy some stuffs that are made of materials which does not ruin the nature. For example, I do not buy plastic stuffs.
I also have Recycle Bags for shopping.
The other thing that I do, is to reduce using washing machine;I collect all cloths and wash them together at once.
seprating garbages and puting them into the proper bins is another thing that I do.Moreover, instead of consuming paper towels for cleaning, I try to use fabrics. I collect glass bottles and turn them into decorating peices for my dining table.These are the methods that I try to do personally to keep the nature alive.

Here in Brazil, ordinary people like me are getting more and more concerned with the protection and preservation of our local environment. We have some special bins/trash cans usually located on the premises of buildings and of other public places such as shopping malls and resturants. Each can is for a specific type of material, which, of course, can be taken to a special place to be recycled.

I don't know how wide this area here is recommended. For I am a student, I'll focus mainly on my university. As far as I'm concerned, there's been improvement in protecting the environment, but still not much in recycling. There're even people having no sense of this activity. I hope in the future, there'll be more positive changes.

Kiswani said...

The recycling is an important issue, should all people become more care about it. In my country there are special companies collecting these materials, they have distributed containers with special colors in the public stores like Malls, supermarkets, in addition to the parks as kind of promotion In order to make these things familiar for the people. I think we should all support this job because we will save a lot and gain a lot.

No recycling center has been founded near our university.We do not konw where we can send the useful recycling materials.I think many people in my university still need education about how to collect the recycling materials.Most of them even don't konw what are the recycling matrials and they just throw away them whenever they want.This is a big problem for us.In my opinion, society, government and citizen should pay attention to the recycling and cooperate together to solve this problem so that our children can have a bright, beautiful and clean future.

Recycling isn't popular, especially in third world countries. If the aim is to penetrate through the minds of those living in developed countries, to recycle more and still no substantial change, how do we reach out to those in the poorest countries who have more things to worry about than their environment?! I think there's a geographical aspect to this question that, in reality, will be hard to solve.

Here, in Belgium, we have lots of different dustbins (for "usual" rubbish, biodegradable, plastic bottles, glasses,...) Of course some people do not care about it but in general people do it quite well I think.But it's not enough, of course

Recycling is a beneficial process, that could conserve our environment. However, not all of us could understand the impotence or this mechanism in our time. However,some people care of our surroundings by digging domestic waste, besides plastic things. Moreover, some of them gather & sortie plastics,glasses& papers in special cans.

First before talking about recycling to protect the environnement we need to use less packaging, produce less polluting cars and then we can talks about recycling.
Because it's the firm that polute more and after it's the citizens.
However, hich person must take the environnement into account on a daily basis.

Solar panes can reduce the price of electricity, heating and hot water. More and more people are interested. But the solar material is very expensive. It is ecological because it reduce the greenhouse effect. It is a profital for industrie. If the compagny use this material, it is good for the earth. It is a new trend.

I think that people are not enough sensitized about risk of the pollution. It's certainly due to a lack of information. Move over, it's difficult for people to change the past habits.

Personaly, I am in favour of recycling. It is important to sort out products to reduce pollution and save money. However, I think that people are not aware of the problem of the planet. That's why they should be have to be more prevention. But,a problem remain : people have difficulty to change their behaviour.

Anthony et Julien said...

More and more people think of the protection of the planet. More and more companies invest money to develop eco friendly systems. As far as I am concerned, I make efforts to collect and select the waste. I think that there should be more organisations which protect the environment or giving the other organisations more money to promote their campaign.

Car-pooling, recycling are a good idea to protect our environment. I think that we should reduce the amount of waste and people should feel concerned. People should save energies, raw materials to reduce the greenhouse effect, water pollution, air pollution and so on.

We all know that the global warming results from environmental pollution. For goverments, they have their own ways to solve this issue. As far as I'm concerned, the individual citizen's awareness is very important to protect our environment. In my family, my mother usually uses two kinds of wastebin, one for garbages like plastic bags, bottles, cans and one for organic garbages like vegetables. Such division does not take us alot of time and we easily take them to places to be recycled.

Here in Taiwan, recycling is more and more popular and helps many people earn a living. The government plays an important role in the promotion and enforcement of recycling. People may not adapt themselves to recycling at first but get used to it in the long run.

While recycling sounds so essential, learning to strip unnecessary wastes is always the one and only one way to saving resources on earth. After all, recycling is a mere post-action, isn't it?

BTW, the quiz speech seems incomplete. Is it intentional?

savennia said...

In my area, most of the people don't pay much attention to saving the environment. Although recently there is a program calling everyone in my city to keep the city clean and green, but it seems like people don't really take any considerable action. I think the only thing that need to improve is that people should put more recycle bins on the side walk and at other public places. In my opinion, the main reason why people are likely to litter is that there's a lack of recycle bins. Another thing to be concerned is that many people are using plastic bags without considering the harm they are causing to the environment; therefore, raising public's awareness of this issue is necessary, too.

Many people do not take into account the environment in their daily lives, but it is very important because if each of us implement awareness march better things and the environment too.

Here in Australia, government has Kept two bins for each home one is recycle bin and the other one is non recycle bin. People need to identify the waste and put it in respective bin. Some lasy people are not doing it. Recently adelaide state government has made rule to stop using plastic covers in shops which is appreciated. my suggestion to government is to keep one more bin to collect waste oil like car engine oil.

I know it is very important to protect the environment. I am not good at recycling. First, I don't know what is recycling material except paper. Second, it takes more time to put papers in recycling bins than garbage bins. There are some recycling bins outside a supermaket.I am a lazy people. I heard battery is harmful to the earth. I want to throw old battery in right palce but I can't find it.

Although recycling is a very important factor in order to protect environment but there is not much attention paid to take full advantage of this option. In my area, since last year property management put a container. It was not announced that the recycling services had been started and there was no formal education. Well, it took people a while to figure that out that the container is supposed to be used for recycling. It took management almost one year to send out brochures what to recycle? What I have observed that people are willing to learn and enthusiastic about recycling but there is no active effort from city as well property management. There are no separate containers for papers, bottles and other recycling materials. I believe that, in our community, we have long ways to go to perfect our practices in recycling. It will take active participation from the property management and city council to educate people and change their habits. People are willing to learn because I know that the single container we have in our property needs to be emptied out frequently than before. This shows that more and more people are participating. But I still see aluminum cans and empty bottles of bear and liquor in our front lawns.

In my town, Grosseto, lots of people recycle the garbage in paper, plastic, glass, organic or inorganic. That is very important for the huminity, animals and our planet's survival. It is not so difficult... We must only put every material in its specific bin.
In this way, the paper of an old newspaper can be reused as a paper sheet after the recycling.
Also broken glasses can be trasformed in a bottle.

I haven't thought about recycling strongly but, guess I shoud take it more seriously. from now on, I will try to be more responsable about it.

Nathália said...

Nowadays there are many people worried about recycling. I see many of them in television, but around me i do not see where i can put the garbage to recycling in most situations.

First of all, my city do not have separated spaces for several types of garbages. In fact, when i see the garbage´s truck taking the gargabe i only see the men putting all kinds of them mixed inside the truck.

For this reason, it is more difficult for us to separate the garbage, because they mixed all of them in the garbage´s truck.

Overall, i would like to contribute to separate the garbage, but i do not know how to start this work.

We should think which is good for environment before use or buy things.There's a campaign which support using basket instead of plastic bag in my country.Some supermarkets will give you discount if you take your own basket to collect things which you buy instead of using plastic bags.I think it's good ideas.

I think we are lucky here in Austria because we have a good recycling system. Even if i cant say that for every area here. Its crazy but even if i do care about our planet, the waste and the pollution i cant say that i am doing something for it. So are the people around me. Yes, we do have special bins for our waste but we often dont use them and dont care about it. Its sad but thats the way it is. I think it is important to speak in terms of actually facts and figures that everyone can understand. So that people will become more cognizant of the problem. Its important for our planet and for us as well.

I think there are more and more people in my city (Brest, in FRANCE) who feel concerned by the recylcling.
Indeed, my city make the selective sorting. We have two bins : one for glass, and the other for the plastic, boxes and alluminium.
People reuse potatoes peels for composting..
At home, we try to switch the lights off.
In shop we doesn't give plastic bag, we recycling batteries, bottles, clothes..
However, some restaurants like "MacDonald" used so much packagings and this is not biodegradable.

I think that the environmental protection is very important but the problem is that few persons feel concerned.
More and more associations build up to solve this problem, for example in my city there are various sorts of associations : recycling of iron, recycling of old computers, the voluntary work to clean waste in cities...
Many of the other actions can be carried out at home as sorting, the economy of water, car sharing or take public transport.
Everybody has to feel concerned about this subject.

To protect the environment, people shouldn't throw their waste in the street but into the bins.
And people should make the sorting.
In my city there aren't many bins and recycling centres so people throw the waste on the ground.
For me, Political should create a law and give a fine to people who pollute the street and the sea.
If people take their waste to recycling centres. they should get money back.

To protect the planet, I sort out my waste in various trash cans, I reuse my bottles, I switches off light when I go out of every room.
Futehermore, I sell or give my clothes whitch I do not like any more so that they are reused usefully.
I buy biodegradable bags because the plastic bags is poluting and are long to decay.
But a lot of people do no thonk of the planet.

In my area, we have three places where we can recycle garbage. In each place, there are three boxes: one for plastic, one for paper and newspapers and one for glasses.

At home, we put some of our leftover food (e.g., egg shells, vegetables, coffee ground ...) in a special box. Then we empty this box in a special place. This leftover food is used as fertilizer for our garden. We also collect rainwater and use it to water the garden.

Of course, recycling is an important issue.
In my country there are special containers for the different garbage ( plastic, glasses, papers...).
Moreover, more and more shops of my area distribute recyclable bags.
What's more, in my garden there is a place where we put vegetable, banana peels and egg shells... It's a compost to produce fertilizer.
And to protect our future, in my country there are wind turbines too to create energy.
So i think, that people should feel more and more conserned by the environnement and the consequences.

To finish, I sort out glasses, plastic bottles, the newspapers and I put then speciali garbage bin.

I think that many persons do not fell concerned enough by recycling, maybe because of the lack of bins. What more I notice that there are not bins in all the building. It seens to me that the state is right to install bins near all the buildings of the city. Thanks to that people are going feel more concerned. Personally, I try to switch of lamp, water, tv and computer when I don't need it any more.

I do not feel concerned by the recycling because in my district there are not containers to sort out our garbage. In the city people begin to install recycling containers.
When I was on holidays in the south in France it was much cleanner, if the city took more actions maybe people would sort out their waste.
However personnally, I return medicines and toxic products which I do not use any more to the pharmacy. I think people weather adapting to the recycling. A simple act for the earth.

Laurie-Anne said...

To protect our future, we have to react. Everybody has to do something to protect our future. We can take simple actions. For exemple, sort out plastic, paper and glass. They can be recycled! To avoid pollution and the deforestation. In schools, in companies, in the streets we shouldn't throw chewing-gum, paper, bottles on the ground, because they take a very long time to dissapear. It's necessary to use more public transport and less our cars. To take small actions. We must think of the future generations, of the nature, of the fauna and of the flora. A simple act and my earth gets better.

More and more people in France become responssible and tries to do something to protect the environment. But some people are not careful and continue to throw garbage in the nature. Personally, I throw my garbage in the bin and the garbage that I can recycle in an other bin. According to me, if all people make an effort and become aware of the importance of nature, the world will be better and we understand that is easy to save the planet.

I think that it is easy to recycle and to avoid polluting.

The problem is that nobody pay attention to pollution and the environment, people don’t sort garbage even if simple.

It is important to sort garbage, make compost with old food, reuse or customize old clothes.

We put plastic, glass, paper in the container which are in the streets.

We can reduce the electric consumption (television, lights…) it is necessary to reduce paper, plastic, glass…

to save the environment.

My parents buy electrical appliances withe the label energy « A ».

I use energy-saving bulbs.

When i do the dishes, I use only somedrops of products because they are often very powerful and often not bio-degradable, what makes them toxic for the environment.

I prefer products and wrapping.

In my area I think that people are not concerned by recycling. The city should suggest the citizens simple actions to limit useless waste.
That’s why I think that for example we should make a big collect of compost which could be used for the natural in the city.
However there are containers for recycling but the problem is that they aren’t everywhere in the city.
That’s why people aren’t motivated to sort of their waste.
It would be necessary to find more solutions to improve the sorting of waste.
The city authorities should take the problem more seriously because it is essential.

I really think that global warming is the biggest danger against the humanbeing. It causes serious damages to the earth weather and environment such as deicing the ice mountains in the north pole and south pole, which might completely affect the climate. Tornadoes, floods, and fire forest are all examples of this terrible danger. Here in my country , people are really aware of that, they are doing their best not to pollute the environment. we can minimize the global warming by reducing the amount of gases we use everyday.

Yet, a lot of people think the ecology is boring but thanks to a few actions we can save our planet. what's more they can save money.

Everybody must have écological habits, this is really necessary and easy to protect the environment.
We can do a lot of little actions like make compost, collect the rain to water the garden. What's more, we can use recycle bags for shopping and choose cardboard packaging instead of plastic packaging because carboard is easier to recycle.
If the government doesn't pay attention to the environement, the citizen can change, just with good idea and a minimum of good will.

I think that recycling is a very important thing for our environment. In my area a lot of people switch off the light when the leave a room , or they buy ecologics bulbs, a lot of my neighbours , keep some place in their gardens to have a composter and throw vegetable waste in it. All the inhabitants of my city are worried about that , and they often organise parties to collect money , in order to build a recycling centre. When I go to the supermarket , I try to have paper bags to reuse them, and to move by bike or on foot, that is to say without my car not to pollue the air. And my parents have bought a lot pf solar panels to collect the energy from the sun. I think that politicians , and the media should speak more about the ways to protect our area and about recycling our waste everyday. I't a very important thing to take care of that, beacause the planet is our environment , it's all we have and we have to protect it what ever the way.

In my town we love the enviroment and we recycling. In the morning we put outside of the door the rubbish, and the dustman take it. Every day we chage the type of rubbish; for example, on Monday we've got the Compost (all that we don't eat); on Tuesday we've got paper, like journals and others. Unfortunately some people are very bad: if you see the beach you can find cigarettes, plastic bottles and other rubbish. If all people do recycling the earth could be perfect!

I live with my family at a skyscraper where the building, at the lobby, offers three big containers for recycling materials such as plastic and aluminium bottle, can, paper and plastic bag etc. I would say most of the tenants will drop these recycling trash while they get in and out of the building. People seem understanding our mother natural needs to be cared. Otherwise, our next generations will not able to enjoy what we have had now. As a matter of fact, everyone only has to think about our future before they throw plastic bottle, can and plastic bag to the recycling containers instead of regular trash bin. Moreover, try to save energy by shutting off air-conditions, lights and computers after people finish tasks will help our world last longer.

Frankly speaking, we are not very keen towards the issue of recycling. Though there are many containers which can separate the type of rubbish, many people just ignored it. Government has earned a lot of money to campaign the recycle program, however it 'falls into deaf ears' among residences. For me, it is all about attitude and to what extent on people's awareness towards this matter. Luckily, we have foreign workers that collect the aluminium cans, papers and bottles over the weekend at resident area and sell it to recycle center for their side income.

I think that recycling is the best way to 'help' our Earth.However, most people don't care about this or simply they are not well informed. As for me, I recycle everything because this is our world and we must keep it alive. Therefore,people must be aware that this is an important action for our world and that, thanks to that, we can live better as well.

Recycling is a very good idea and it must be done on a bigger scale. More people must be encouraged to recycle. It is also important to remember that it is not possible to recycle everything and so when it is not possible to recycle or it is too expensive to recycle, it is best to reduce consumption. For example, one resource that can be recycled is water. We built a house in Germany. We selected 2 ways to recycle water in our house. Collecting rain water and reusing it in the garden or toilet and directing water from our bathroom to the garden. Assa from Persia

Recycling is very important to the environment, I agree with the speaker espically in the first point. Actually I was one of the people whom don't care about the recycle but after I came to USA and start to see and listen to the advertising I found that its ok to care a little more about it and I start first. if every one try to care about the recycle and advice each other it will be habit and natural to do it without thinking that its a hard thing to do it.

I think tree is very important in the earth.If the earth does not have the tree,all animal and human will be death.so we should do something to protect the tree.For example,we can reduce to cut tree,collect all used paper for recycling,and do not use disposable things.Also we should plant the tree.

I still remember 5 years ago in my mother town you can use plastic bags as you like,but now you must spend some money to use it for plastic bag's recycling fee.So many people in my area use paper bags and cloth bags now.Although a number of people don't know why they use other bags instead of plastic bags,but the high cost has instead they have made a choice.

Recycling is not popular anywhere. Neither people are interested in it, nor governments. There are no big private players who lobby for such activities but there are many who dissuade the governments to support any such movement. But in the recent days, some NGOs as well as some international multi-government bodies are doing a good job in this field. As a learned citizen of our planet Earth we should support such efforts and help that small group of right mind people which are really working for our posterity.

Save the enviroment is a priority today. I think that one important thnk to do is to use the TV commercials to educate the people about the importance of this. Show how clasify recycling materials at home or in the office and how this helps to our planet would helps to make the people more conscious about the recycling immportance.

we can recycle glass if we return the containers of the product to the same place we bought it because they take this containers to a special place when they are reused,and a good way to recycle paper could be create a notebook with the the paper that has been used writing in the side that has not beeen used.!

Paper Recycling
Paper recycling is the paper recovery process and used to transform into new paper products. There are three categories of paper that can be used as raw material for recycled paper: grinding, pre-consumer waste and scrap of paper post-consumo.1 ground are bits and pieces from the manufacture of paper, and is recycled internally in a paper mill. Pre-consumer wastes are materials that have gone through the paper mill, and have been rejected before they are ready for consumption. Post-consumer waste paper materials are used and that the consumer rejects, such as old magazines or newspapers, office supplies, telephone, etc. The paper considers suitable for recycling is called "scrap of paper"

Current recycling process

The paper is recycled paper pulp reducing and combining with new pulp from wood. Since the recycling process causes disruption of the fibers, recycled whenever the quality of the paper decreases, which means that a high percentage must add new fibers, or be synonymous with lower quality products. Any writing or coloring paper must first be removed by decoloración.2
Almost any type of paper can be recycled today, but some are more difficult to treat than others. The papers covered with plastic or aluminum, and waxed papers, glued or gummed usually not recycled because of the high cost involved. The wrapping paper can not be recycled due to its already poor calidad.3
Sometimes recycling plants asked to withdraw the brightness of the newspapers, because they are of a different type of paper. They have a clay coating that some factories may not work. Most of the clay is removed from the recycled pulp as sludge.
[Edit] Reasons for recycling

The paper industry is an effect in the environment, both with previous activities (which are acquired and processed raw materials), as in the subsequent (impact of disposal). Recycling paper reduces this impact. Currently, 90% of paper pulp is manufactured from wood. Paper production accounts for about 35% of lumber, 4 assuming 1.2% of the global production volume total.5
Recycling one ton of newsprint saves approximately one ton of wood while recycling one ton of paper copies printed or saved over two tonnes of wood. This is because the pulping of wood requires twice to remove lignin and produce higher quality fibers with mechanical manufacturing processes. The relationship between the tons of recycled paper and the number of trees saved is not trivial, since the size of the trees varies greatly and is the main factor in the amount of paper that can be obtained from a number of them.
Most pulp manufacturers perform a reforestation to ensure a continuous supply of paper. In Canada, the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certifies that the paper made from trees felled meets practice guidelines, ensuring best practice is forestales.6 estimated that recycling half the world's paper would avoid the harvesting of 20 million acres (81,000 km ²) forestales.7
In summary, some reasons to recycle paper are saving:
17 adult trees.
2.5 cubic meters of waste.
27,000 liters of water.
1440 liters of oil.
4100 kilowatt hours (14,700 megajoules) of energy.
27 kilograms of contaminants.
For every ton of paper recycled, compared with the production of that same ton of virgin paper.

What we do is to recycle:
* Lights out, in case you are not using
* not spending a lot of water and gas
* Recycle paper that is not dirty or damaged
* Use biodegradable bags plasties
* Using bags of straw to make the remittance
* Reuse plastic bags
* Avoid throwing away plastic bags

For us it is very important to foster the environment. And do not pollute;)

The recycling is an important issue and all people should be aware and take part in saving our environment. But not all people are supporting this opinion. And for this reason our goverment plays an important rule in the promotion and enforcement of recycling. There is necessary to have the aim to penetrate through minds of those who living in developed countries and have more things to worry about then their environment. In my area to save the environment from the pollutions some supermarkets sale a biodegradable bags because the plastic bag is polluting and long to decay. Furthermore there are separate containers in the large parks for organic, inorganic, plastic garbage. And i have observed that people are willing to throw away some waste in correct box. As for my family, my mom and dad also put some of their leftover food (e.g. banana peels, egg shells, ect.)outside in a special box that turn the scraps into soil for their garden. We also save energy turning off the light that we are not using, trying to reduce using washing machine, moreover instead of consuming paper towels for cleaning we try to use fabrics. And we all know that if in our environment will be less pollutions all people won't have respiratory issues

Many people in Vietnam don't have much time to care about this issue since they are too hectic with their careers or studying. However,thanks to the development of media, individuals are more able to access to environmental problems, by taking part in campaigns, conservation, and some other activities,especially youngsters. But we must change our attitude and improve awareness. Trash is still thrown to streets everyday. In my opinion, Vietnamese governments are only scratching the surface in tackling this acute problem

I love recycling. Since last year, I've been sorting the garbage so I can take it for recycling on my december vacation.

I know it's not common yet people recycling stuff they usually throw away, but I think we don't have to wait until the goverment or our neighbors start to do such things. If you can do it, so do it. As M.Gandhi said: Be the change you wanna see in the world.

Recycling is a good thing to do when you have used something that you can't use anymore. It saves resources. And people in my country are quite concerned about that. They usually recycle glass, paper, plastics and other things because they have the proper containers to do it.

However we can't solve the environmental problems with just recycling. We use more things than we really need. And the resources of the Earth are not infinite. We should think seriously about it. If not, we will suffer the consequences.

This is worrying each time we do nothing to help improve the pollution in the world. if we do not put our part. Who will do it?. the answer is simple no one will.
Let's start with something small. as recycling paper, cardboard, bottles. bringing these materials to where to buy them.
in my house the end of the month, there are plenty of cards, and what I do is pick them up and take them to recycling sites.
