Recycling is not a modern phenomenon. Nature has recycled waste for millions of years, but as populations have grown, so too has the amount of waste that is discarded. The environment is finding it harder to decompose the waste at the same rate at which it is being dumped. As such, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle NZ outlines ways to tackle the environmental problems that our community faces.

The book facilitates the understanding that as a member of a natural and social system it is important for us to sustain present and future ecology. Topics include:

  • What is recycling?
  • Why recycle?
  • History of recycling;
  • Recycling tips;
  • Landfill;
  • Ocean dumping;
  • Incineration;
  • Cost of waste;
  • Types of recycling including green waste, paper and cardboard,
  • Plastics and aluminium;
  • Environmental groups.
