NUMBERS TELL THE STORY
The current overall metal recycling rate is about 30 percent. This means only 30% of used products are actually being recycled. It does not look good for us as a whole ! Where did we go wrong? There is a lot of talk about recycling and how wonderful it is. But, people are still missing recycled metals such as aluminum pop cans with regular waste. The challenges remain as to how we can recapture more material for recycling. The expansion of community recycling programs and public awareness helps. The next generation may do a better job. Awareness is evident in advertising and public feelings. But, the practical process of recycling should be improved.
LOW RECYCLING RATES
Another important reason for the low recycling rate has to do with the design of various metal products. The growing complexity of various modern products and their material mix makes recycling increasingly difficult. For instance, a simple mobile phone can contain as many as 40 different elements. So, extracting every kind of materials from a mobile phone and reusing them in the production of new products makes it difficult. We know how many mobile phones are on this planet. Its time for someone to invent a better process. Or, have reusable phones or phones made from different materials.
Recycling plastics and aluminum uses only 5% to 10% as much energy as making new plastic or smelting aluminum
