On Earth Day, people all around the world help the planet. But you can help the planet anytime. Recycling is an important way to do this. Do you recycle? Read on to learn more about it.
What Can I Recycle?
Paper can be recycled. So can metal, plastic, and glass. Give those a rinse first.
Keep It Separated
Put each material into a different bin. This will help recycling centers sort it all out later on.
Here Comes the Truck
A recycling truck will come to take your materials away. Now they’re headed to a recycling center.
The materials will be sorted. They might be compressed , or crushed. They are on their way to becoming something new.
Use items in a new way without recycling them. Try making a plastic bottle into an instrument. Plant seeds in an old egg carton.
