What is recycling? Recycling is to turn rubbish in to something new rather than to lose it forever.

When you throw rubbish away in a bin it is sent to a big hole in the ground or it is set on fire and burnt for energy in a big energy plant. If it is sent to the big hole it is called landfill and rubbish is thrown on top of other rubbish until you can not fit anymore in and the hole and then it is closed and another is opened in a different place.

This is very damaging to the environment because of what is put in the ground and also because this rubbish is not recycled.

Every day brilliant children and adults come up with new ideas on how to recycle rubbish to protect our planet and there are now so many benefits from recycling that it is very naughty not to recycle!”(Compact and Bale)
