Foto of Recycling Trash Containers for Waste Disposal

Recycling of trash is a successful business. It has two main sources of revenue. It can be set up as a waste management within urban or industrial areas and receive money from governmental or private customers. Garbage collectors often recycle scrap metal, plastic bottles, broken glass and used paper. The colorful containers in this photo are used in the beautiful park of Singapore. Visitors of the park use the trash bins for disposal of waste into the garbage cans that like to eat solid scrap metals and papers. Later the recyclable materials are collected, sorted out and sold to recycler companies that build expensive products from recycled trash.

Recycling of waste existed before modern civilization. During periods when resources were scarce, waste was recycled into new materials. Dust and ash from wood and coal fires was collected for making bricks. Bronze and other metals were collected for reuse. The main advantage for these types of recycling was an economic advantage over other methods of mining or making. Recycling creates affordable materials. Material collection is an active type of nature conservation that helps to overcome scarcity of limited natural resources.
