               Main Idea
• Taking material at the end of its use and
  turning it into useable material to make a
  new product.
• Most daily items are produced in factories
  and with the more items recycled the less
  toxin is released in the air.
• Products made from recyclable material
  require less energy in the process.
           How to Recycle
• You can create separate bins and label
  them for separate recyclable items to
  avoid confusion with the trash
• Rinse things before you recycle them
• Keep recycling bins inside to avoid bad
  smell and animals from digging through it
