  1. 1. WELCOME
  2. 2. Presented by CAPT RUHUL RN-37 OBC-82
  3. 3. AIM • The aim is to present the importance and role of recycling in conserving environment.
  4. 4. SCOPE • Recycling: An Introduction • History of Recycling • The Symbol • What is recycling • Materials that can be recycled • Recycling procedure • Benefits of Recycling • Recycling important to environment • Collection • Waste Management In Bangladesh • What can we do
  5. 5. A process • To change waste materials into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials. • To Reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials. • To Reduce energy usage, air pollution, and water pollution.
  6. 6. • In pre-industrial times, evidence of scrap bronze and other metals collected for reuse. • In Britain dust and ash was collected by 'dustmen' and used in brick making. • In 1813, Benjamin Law developed the process of turning rags into 'shoddy' and 'mungo' wool in Batley, Yorkshire.
  7. 7. HISTORY OF RECYCLING • The recycling movement began in the early 1960s . Environmentalist believed that Americans were wasting minerals, fuels, water, and trees, some of the worlds most valuable resources • In response to the waste outbreak, environmentalist began to develop conservation methods to prevent the inevitable
  8. 8. 110 YEARS OF RECYCLING 110 years after the first recycling plant was established, the U.S. has one of the highest recycling rates in the world, today.
  9. 9. U.S. RECYCLING RATE (1960 – 2008) 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 1960 1970 1980 1990 2000 2002 2006 2007 2008 US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  10. 10. THE SYMBOL The Container Corporation of America developed a campaign to promote conservation awareness as well as launch a nation wide design competition for recycle symbol.
  11. 11. THE SYMBOL Gary Anderson of North Las Vegas, Nevada won first place in the competition. He beat out more than four hundred submissions with his simple hand drawn image.
  12. 12. WHAT IS RECYCLING? • Reduce • Reuse • Recycle
  13. 13. REDUCE MEANS… • Decreasing unnecessary and wasteful purchases • Decreasing the volume of waste • Decreasing pollutants
  14. 14. REUSE MEANS… • Taking care of our stuff • Repurposing • Donating • Upcycling
  15. 15. BUY RECYCLED • Products made from recycled materials • Make it truly recycling • Close the loop
  17. 17. Recycling is a procedure and it is comprised of three parts. Collected and Cleaned then sorted according to the type of material used and how the material will be used. Manufacturing stage, where collected and sorted materials are made into new products that can be reused. Resale, and after the product purchased is finished, the cycle of recycling will resume.
  18. 18. 7 BENEFITS OF RECYCLING • Environmental Protection • Conservation of Resources • Energy savings • Community Building • Jobs creation • Strong economy • Financial Benefit
  19. 19. HOW RECYCLING DO THAT?? Recycling conserves our valuable natural resources :- Recycling helps to conserve our natural resources such as oil, metal and water. For example plastic bottles can be recycled into new plastic bottles and polyester fibers for use in fleece jumpers and car mats. Recycling saves energy :- Recycling aluminum saves 95% of the energy required to produce aluminum from raw materials. Recycling just one plastic bottle will save enough energy to power a 60 watt light bulb for 3 hours!
  20. 20. CONTD…. Recycling protects the environment: Recycling helps to conserve environment , so less greenhouse gases are emitted. With less materials going to landfill, less harmful emissions like methane gas are released into the earth's atmosphere. Recycling can save you money: By putting more recyclable materials into your recycling bin you reduce the amount of times you have to put your general refuse or black bin out for collection.
  21. 21. RECYCLING BUILDS COMMUNITY • People work together • Communicate • Share ideas • Support each other
  22. 22. RECYCLING CREATES JOBS 10,000 tons of waste: • Incinerated, creates 1 job • Landfilled, creates 6 jobs • Recycled, creates 36 jobs!
  23. 23. RECYCLING PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT • Reduced contamination risk from landfills • Reduced pollution • Reduced environmental impact from mining or extracting fresh raw materials.
  24. 24. Why is recycling important to the environment? Take this simple example: by reusing paper, we can make fresh paper to use in schools and the office. By recycling the paper, not only do we conserve energy that it takes to harvest the raw material from trees, we preserve the raw material itself, trees. Trees are good for the atmosphere, naturally clearing the air of harmful greenhouse emissions, so keeping them in tact benefits the environment even more.
  25. 25. Recycling is important because it helps us to save money, benefiting human beings directly in their day to day lives. We can sell recyclable materials to organizations that purchases surplus materials for reuse. Why is Recycling Important to Us Directly?
  26. 26. COLLECTION A number of different systems have been implemented to collect recycles from the general waste stream. The three main categories of collection are:-  Drop-off centers  Buy-back centers  Curbside collection
  29. 29. WASTE MANAGEMENT IN BANGLADESH • Bangladesh has minimal waste collection coverage which forces majority of the waste to be dumped in open lands.where general waste are often mixed with hazardous waste such as hospital waste. In a report the data showed that, in Dhaka, only about 42% of generated waste is collected
  30. 30. FEW EXAMPLES OF GOOD PRACTICES • Source Separation of Waste at Uttara Model Town (Sector 5) • Composting of Waste in Slums • School Composting Program of American International School Dhaka (AISD) • Plastic Waste Recycling in Dhaka by Informal Sector • Battery Buy Back for Recycling by RahimAfrooz • Agricultural Waste Used for Biogas Generation and Improved Cook Stoves
  31. 31. WHAT CAN WE DO??  We can spread awareness among people about the good effects of recycling.  We can gather people from our neighborhood on week offs and collectively make efforts to collect useful garbage.  We must use bins every time we dump waste material.  We must use internet to know more and about recycling
  32. 32. RECYCLING IS A WAY OF LIFE • Once you make the choice to recycle… • And stick to that choice everyday… • Recycling becomes second nature – a way of life.
  33. 33. So, why is recycling important? Recycling is important because it benefits us directly as human beings,benifits for environment and also will deliver long term benefits for our children to enjoy.
  35. 35. ANY QUERY?????

  • 110 years after the first recycling plant was established, the United States today has one of the highest recycling rates in the world.
  • US Recycling Rate (1960-2008) chart, figures according to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
  • What is Recycling? Whenever we try and define recycling, we need to think of the three r's of modern waste management: reduce, reuse, recycle.
  • “Reduce" means: Decreasing unnecessary and wasteful purchases, decreasing the volume of waste, and decreasing pollutants.
  • "Reuse" means taking care of our things so that they can last longer, repurposing used items, donating or giving away unwanted stuff, and upcycling waste materials.
  • Buy Recycled: products made from recycled materials to complete the cycle or close the recycling loop.
  • The 7 Benefits of Recycling are: Financial Benefit, Conservation of Resources, Energy savings, Community Building, Jobs creation, Strong economy, and Environmental Protection.
  • Recycling Builds Community: People work together, Communicate, Share ideas, and Support each other when they're involved in a worthy common endeavor like recycling.
  • Recycling Creates Jobs: 10,000 tons of waste when incinerated, creates 1 job; when landfilled, creates 6 jobs; when recycled, creates 36 jobs!
  • Recycling helps protect the Environment: Reduced contamination risk from landfills, Reduced pollution, Reduced environmental impact from mining or extracting fresh raw materials are all direct results of recycling.
  • Recycling is a way of life: Once you make the choice to recycle, And stick to that choice everyday, Recycling becomes second nature - a way of life.
  • Lets all recycle today.
