The importance of recycling :

It means not throwing something into the rubbish, but putting it into a special bin and it will be used again. All the rubbish should be sorbet out:

  • glass ( green and white bin)
  • plastic (yellow bin)
  • paper (blue bin)
  • cans
  • garden waste of organic origin
  • textile
  • battery


We do it, because this materials can be used again so it is good for environment and it is ecological. We can find garbage containers almost everywhere in this time, because recycling becomes more and more popular, because people realize, that our planet is important for us and we should be nice to it. I thing that recycling has just advantages, because it costs us nothing and it is good for some industries and for us too.
