Recycling involves the reuse of discarded materials in the manufacture of new products.  This helps prevent waste, reduces the use of new raw materials, lowers energy consumption, cuts down on air and water pollution due to lowered incineration and landfilling, and drops GHG emissions when compared to the production of new items from raw materials. The main benefit from recycling is reduced landfill costs. Recycling also lowers a country’s carbon emissions e.g. 49 million metric tons was generated in the United States for the year 2005.
