Every household in the US. produces waste. However, what we think originally as "waste" might still have great value. We can help improve the world's environment by recycling or reusing household discarded items. At the recycling center, there are huge bins available for every type of material: cardboard paper, plastic, aluminum cans, glass, newspaper, and magazines. The collected piles will go through a recycling process that gives them a new life, and the new materials can be used again.
