    Recycling is nothing but rehabilitating the use of old and used items by redoing. e.g., plastics. Melt again and cast and reuse.

    Similary waste and thrown of materials such as tins and cans also can be recycled by reproducing useful materials from them.

    Drain water is treated and recycled for use. Oil from drains of industries are stored and reclailmed and used after mixing up chemcials to get back the qualities required.

    In all the cases, either for lesser important uses or for the same use itself can be had, depending upon the qualilty of recycled product. Thus waste othewise thrown out can be recycled, by duly segregating them for a particular recycling use, known as waste management. e.g. plastics. papers, steel and ferrous items. non-ferrous metals, acids, rubber etc. segregated for recycling.

    Recycling is the reprocessing of materials into new products. Recycling prevents useful material resources being wasted, reduces the consumption of raw materials and reduces energy usage, and hence greenhouse gas emissions, compared to virgin production.[1] Recycling is a key concept of modern waste management and is the third component of the waste hierarchy.

    Recyclable materials, also called "recyclables" or "recyclates", may originate from a wide range of sources including the home and industry. They include glass, paper, aluminium, asphalt, iron, textiles and plastics. Biodegradable waste, such as food waste

    or garden waste, is also recyclable with the assistance of microorganisms through composting or anaerobic digestion.

    Recyclates need to be sorted and separated into material types. Contamination of the recylates with other materials must be prevented to increase the recyclates value and facilitate easier reprocessing for the ultimate recycling facility. This sorting can be performed either by the producer of the waste or within semi or fully-automated materials recovery facilities.

    Waste management is the collection, transport, processing (waste treatment), recycling or disposal of waste materials, usually ones produced by human activity, in an effort to reduce their effect on human health or local aesthetics or amenity. A subfocus in recent decades has been to reduce waste materials' effect on the natural world and the environment and to recover resources from them.

    Waste management can involve solid, liquid or gaseous substances with different methods and fields of expertise for each.

    Waste management practices differ for developed and developing nations, for urban and rural areas, and for residential, industrial, and commercial producers. Waste management for non-hazardous residential and institutional waste in metropolitan areas is usually the responsibility of local government authorities, while management for non-hazardous commercial and industrial waste is usually the responsibility of the generator.
