Interesting facts about rubbish and the impact on the Indooroopilly environment.

The term “recycling” is something which we regularly hear. We’re constantly reminded to be conscious of the environment, but you might not know what recycling is? In other words, recycling entails processing rubbish and transforming it into something new. The waste either becomes a raw material that may be used for producing a new product or it may be transformed into something else. You is going to be surprised to discover items often produced from recycling comprise dishwasher grips, winter coats and coffins! There are companies around the globe that specialise in recycling and here in Australia, Brisbane recycling and waste reduction is currently encouraging every individual to do their part. 

Therefore, we have prepared some fascinating facts you have to understand about recycling in Australia. An Australian generates more waste than any individual from other countries on earth. On average, a household in the country generates around 400 kilograms of waste substances yearly. With or without the existence of oxygen, waste materials degrade.

All these waste-generated compounds greatly contribute to global warming–25 percent more than carbon dioxide. If you ditch a glass bottle in a landfill, it would take approximately 4,000 to some million years until it disintegrates.

Each year, Australians purchase 350 million units and roughly 67% of these are dumped into the landfills. Nickel from waste batteries may still be recycled and used for producing stainless steel. However, not all of rubbish removed from businesses and homes always need to end up in the landfill.
