In the past, the majority of waste was dumped in landfills. For a long time, the only alternative to landfill disposal of waste was incineration. In addition to wasting huge amounts of natural resources and energy, these practises also produced considerable pollution on the land, in groundwater and in the air.
Recycling varying materials, such as for example, paper, plastics and metal; wood and glass, helps to:
For obvious reasons, energy saving in itself also reduces the consumption of irreplaceable materials (oil, coal, natural gas) and pollution otherwise resulting from generating the required energy in the first place. Typical energy savings (in percentages) by recycling certain materials rather than dumping them on landfills and manufacturing more of the same are:
