Interesting facts about the impact on the Melbourne environment.

The word “recycling” is something that we regularly hear. We are constantly reminded to be conscious of the environment, but do you really know what recycling is? In other words, recycling entails processing rubbish and changing it into something new. The waste becomes a raw material that may be used for manufacturing a new product or it can be transformed into something else. You are going to be surprised to find that items often produced from recycling comprise dishwasher grips, winter jackets and coffins! There are companies across the globe that specialise in recycling and here in Australia, Melbourne recycling is currently encouraging every person to do their part. 

Therefore, we’ve prepared some fascinating facts you have to understand about recycling in Australia. An Australian produces more waste than any person from other countries in the world. On average, a household in the nation generates around 400 kilograms of waste materials annually. With or without the presence of oxygen, waste substances degrade.

All these waste-generated compounds greatly contribute to global warming–25 per cent over carbon dioxide. If you ditch a glass bottle in a landfill, it would take around 4,000 to a million years until it disintegrates. You’ll be amazed to discover that if you recycle aluminium merchandise, you can conserve a good quantity of energy also.

What rubbish can (and can’t) be recycled in  Melbourne City.

The normal materials which can be recycled include paper, plastic, metal and glass. Once the waste has been sorted, the materials will be transmitted to a centre where they’ll be processed into fresh recyclable materials. These materials include glassware, plastics and cardboard boxes. You’d be surprised to discover how much waste materials can be recycled.

On the flip side, the things in the bins that can’t be recycled will be regarded as landfill materials. Obviously, we don’t expect you to sort the rubbish you put in our skip bins. But you’re free to play a role in contributing to recycling.

Utilising less plastic has a big effect on the planet.

Did you know that the oil used to fabricate nine plastic bags is sufficient to power a car to get a kilometre? This also means the yearly amount of plastics used by Australians could power an automobile for 450 million kilometres and It takes approximately 500 years to get plastic packaging to start disintegrating.
