recycling

the reprocessing of materials, containers and goods which would otherwise have been thrown away, to be used in the manufacture of some other product; for example the pulping of old newspapers to produce egg boxes and writing paper, and the melting down of used metal drinks cans to make new containers.

Recycling can help businesses keep their production costs down since materials which are recycled are generally less expensive than primary raw materials, and it helps the economy by conserving scarce natural resources and saving on energy costs: recycling paper preserves forests and is estimated to result in a 70% saving of energy compared to processing new timber. Recycling also helps control environmental POLLUTION by reducing the need for waste dumps.
