In a very simple step, the road of a better healthy environment will begin; recycling is the best idea that illustrate the previous point. To Andrew Roper, recycling is the conversion of waste products into new materials, such as waste paper that can be converts into new paper goods (n.d). There are many types of recycling, for example, there are glass, paper, metal, plastics, textiles and electronics recycling (Evans , 2011). This research will focus on recycling papers in the United Arab Emirates, the benefits or recycling and its effect on the environment, the difficulties of recycling, the process of recycling paper, and the finals products of recycling. The difficulties of recycling paper: Recycling is such a fantastic way for us to reuse the waste we once throw.
As a result, our planet is suffering because of this epidemic. The garbage being put in the landfills could be recycled, but not enough businesses, ... ... middle of paper ... ...le items. By showing the world the severity of our need for conservation, we will be able to save the earth and get the most out of our resources. We need to fix this problem before it becomes uncontrollable to the point of having no resources to supply our needs. By reducing our consumption of resources, we will be able to become closer to fixing the problem of global warming, high gasoline prices and pesticide filled meats.
Re-use is different from recycle because it means using old products repeatedly while recycling means using the underlying elements of an old product as raw material to create new goods. Although recycling looks promising in reducing the harm done to the environment, it has some disadvantages. This process requires lots of dedication to collect and reprocess materials back into raw form; hence, re-use is a better option. Low... ... middle of paper ... ...ng.

What is a landfill? The definition of a landfill is a place that is used for the disposal of waste material that is then buried and covered by soil. There are two main explanations on why the reduction of landfills are important. One of the main reason why it is important to recycle so to reduce the number of landfills is because when materials are compacted, the oxygen is removed. This is not a splendid thing because the lack of oxygen causes the material to decompose incorrectly, which leads to a more deadly greenhouse gases being released into the atmosphere, intern causing air pollution.
One solution is a government “centralized composting” which reduces “the environmental effects of food waste by diverting food away from landfills” (“Solving the problem of food waste”). Not only can composting reduce the amount of greenhouse gases, like methane in the air, but also enrich the soil with nutrients. While some may encourage citizens to compost on their own, the problem is that many citizens are either lazy or simply do not want to spend their time doing something when throwing away food is a better alternative. However, if the government were to implement a program for composting, many citizens will make use of the service because of the convenience and benefits. Another solution includes government regulations that make it mandatory for corporations to use one label, such as ‘best by,’ that don't confuse the public.

This will allow waste management agencies to focus more energy and time studying other ways of controlling the negative effects of wastes that does make it to landfills. A recycle conscience society can preserve the earth for many generations to come. Works Cited Getis, Arthur et al.
