Global environmental pollution is being fought in the world at all levels, from large companies to small communities. Recycling is one of the solutions by which production is reduced, greenhouse gas emissions into the air are reduced. During the renovation, enough construction waste is generated in the apartment, which will be removed by performers who will take it for processing for the manufacture of building mixtures. This is the best option for disposal without polluting nature.

What problems does recycling solve?

Do not confuse recycling with recycling. As a result of the reprocessing of materials, new resources are created: energy, heat, new products. Therefore, secondary raw materials solve certain problems related to the environment:

  • the production of new materials from scratch is reduced;
  • the emission of combustion products during disposal is reduced;
  • The amount of greenhouse gases is minimized.

In addition, there is no need for landfill burial, which is considered one of the most destructive solutions for the environment.

Stages of recycling

The technology for the production of secondary raw materials is carried out in several stages. These include:

  1. Harvesting. To begin with, raw materials are compiled, which are accumulated in the amount that is necessary to start processing and production.
  2. Sorting. Waste is selected according to its physical characteristics: composition, color, properties, condition.
  3. Treatment. At this stage, with the help of special equipment and technologies, the chemical, biological and physical formula for the further operation of the material is changed.
  4. Recycling. The production process cannot run without waste, so some disposal of residues after secondary processing is required.
Various materials are involved in recycling: paper, glass, polymers, wood, construction waste.

Each material has its own characteristics, which are actively used in the creation of new raw materials.

Why recycling is good for the environment

Production focused on secondary raw materials is not only a cost-effective measure, but also good for the environment. Let’s name three factors why recycling is beneficial:

  1. Air purification. When garbage is burned, more than 250 harmful chemicals are released into the atmosphere. Including carbon monoxide, mercury, phenol. Their concentration in the atmosphere causes a number of incurable diseases, affects the general state of ecology on the planet. By eliminating such a method as incineration by recycling, the emission of these substances is minimized, as a result, the environment suffers much less from production processes.
  2. Restoration of natural resources. Most materials use natural resources. There are fewer and fewer of them, which is why the environment, nature and the entire planet as a whole suffer. Recycling contributes to the conservation of trees, plants and animals by creating new raw materials from waste.
  3. Business benefit. It is profitable to deal with secondary raw materials today. By purchasing waste at the lowest price, the company receives valuable material for obtaining new raw materials by changing its physical and chemical properties. In the future, the resulting material is easy to sell on the market, which is loyal to secondary raw materials, as it is environmentally friendly in origin.

Removal of construction waste with the help of professionals is only the first step towards restoring the environment and caring for nature.
