Leachate -- water percolates through a solid leaching out some of the components Use of resources --- for new products & recycling processes Industry --- jobs, income, etc. Environment Materials --- glass, paper and newsprint, cardboard, steel, aluminum, copper, iron, plastics, electronics, rubber (tires), organic waste, batteries (ex. NiCad containing nickel and cadmium), gold, silver, Freon, aggregates and concrete, asphalt and tarmac, bricks, ink jet printer cartridges, paint, textiles, mine chat waste, ship salvage, cars (all parts), pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, and possibly other materials.

The process of re-using a given product (beyond its intended use), or producing a new product from a recyclable material. Recycling is more commonly associated with the process where old goods are re- manufactured, allowing them to be turned into new products The virtue of recycling has been appreciated for centuries. For thousands of years metal items have been recycled by melting and reforming them into new weapons or tools. It is said that the broken pieces of the Colossus of Rhodes, a statue deemed one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, were recycled for scrap. During the industrial revolution, recyclers began to form businesses and later trade associations, dealing in the collection, trade and processing of metals and paper. America's Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI), a trade association with more than 1,400 member companies, traces its roots back to one such organization founded in 1913. In the 1930s many people survived the Great Depression by peddling scraps of metal, rags and other items. In those days reuse and recycling were often economic necessities. Recycling also played an important role during the second world war, when scrap metal was turned into weapons. RECYCLING

Graphs and data for plastics http://www.container- recycling.org/index.php/plastic-datahttp://www.container- recycling.org/index.php/plastic-data PET is polyethylene terephthalate. PET is the plastic labeled with the #1 code. Many beverages, food items and other consumer products are delivered in bottles or packages made from PET. The #1 code is usually found on or near the bottom of the container. Used to make new bottles, recycled PET can also be made into fiber for carpets; fabric for t-shirts or fleece jackets; fiberfill for sleeping bags, winter coats, and dog beds; industrial strapping; sheet and thermoformed (clam shell) packaging; and automotive parts such as headliners, bumpers, and door panels.

Copenhagen Resource Institute, http://www.cri.dk/http://www.cri.dk/ Sweden is hungry for trash and has turned to Norway for an offer it would find hard to refuse, no pun intended. Sweden is asking its neighbor for trash. Sweden's success is Sweden's problem. Sweden is a model recycler. Thanks to a highly efficient waste management system in Sweden, the vast majority of this household waste can be recovered or reused http://phys.org/news/2012-10-sweden-norway-trash- lots.html#jCp http://phys.org/news/2012-10-sweden-norway-trash- lots.html#jCp SWEDEN & RECYCLING
