Motivations for recycling include environmental concerns, as recycling reduces the use of energy and raw materials and the need to dispose of waste, and for cost reasons, in situations where production from recycled material is less expensive than from new material. While extensive variety of waste is recyclable, materials commonly recycled on an industrial scale include glass, paper, aluminium, asphalt and steel. Recycled materials can be derived from pre-consumer waste (materials used in manufacturing), or post-consumer waste (materials discarded by the consumer).
To protect our environment and conserve our natural resources
The natural environment comprises all living and non-living things that occur naturally on Earth. In its purest sense, it is thus an environment that is not the result of human activity or intervention. The natural environment may be contrasted to "the built environment."
To ensure that plastics, oils and other materials are reused over and over again
Reuse is distinguished from most forms of recycling, where the good is reduced to a raw material and used in the making of a new good (eg crushing of bottles to make glass for new bottles).
