What is Recycling?

Recycling refers to the industry resulting from the waste of materials that have been used before so that they are recycled to the same or other previous product, which is called a circular economy.

Recycling has become a leading industry in many countries, an approach adopted by many governments because it is a financially efficient industry that contributes to the preservation of the environment and helps in the optimal disposal of the problem of accumulated waste.

The world's recycling activity is estimated to be more than 40% of the world's raw material needs, which is active in important sectors such as steel and plastics, paper products, glass and others.
