Definition of Recycling:–
To make the thing reuseable again is called recycling.
It is widely practiced by the informal sector “waste pickers” or by the solid waste management staff themselves for extra income. Collection of recyclable waste is done in several steps such as households (door to door collection), transfer stations and even in the disposal sites. Such work is done in a very labor-intensive and unsafe way, and for very low incomes. Recovered and recyclable products then enter a chain of dealers, or processing before they are finally sold to manufacturing enterprises. The main items that are recycled include soft and hard plastics, glass, steel, paper, cardboard, aluminum and alloys etc. In Bhutan, around 20% of the collected wastes are sent for recycling.
