Interesting facts about rubbish and the effect on the Oakleigh environment.

The term “recycling” is something that we frequently hear. We’re always reminded to know the environment, but you might not know what recycling is? In other words, recycling entails processing rubbish and changing it into something brand 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 items regularly generated from recycling include toothbrush handles, winter jackets and coffins! There are companies around the world that specialise in recycling and here in Australia, Melbourne recycling is encouraging each person to do their part. 

Therefore, we’ve prepared some interesting facts you need to understand about recycling in Australia. An Australian generates more waste than any person from other nations in the world. Normally, a household in the nation generates around 400 kilograms of waste materials yearly. With or without the presence of oxygen, waste materials degrade.

If you ditch a glass jar in a landfill, it would take approximately 4,000 to a thousand years until it disintegrates. The fantastic news is glass stuff can be recycled over and over again.
