Why recycling is Important

recycling plays a big part in our lives,

In this day and age when protection of the environment is of vital importance, recycling plays a big part in our lives, or at least, it should. 

Effects of plastic pollution
Plastic pollution can affect our water and our health.

Why? Recycling is a simple way to lessen our footprint on the planet. The never-ending increasing mass of refuse is a huge problem, and unless we do something about it, it is only going to get worse with devastating effects. We must preserve natural resources for future generations. Recycling means less raw material and less energy used. Making products from raw materials is also a lot more expensive. Sunrise Sanitation Services plays an essential role in keeping the environment free of plastic and recyclable waste, but we must all be aware and active.
