Does recycling avoid pollution and deforestation?

It avoids pollution and deforestation because the more you don't recycle things the more you want the supply for the thing to be made . As it is mentioned above, if you recycle the wood you won't need more wood to make other things made from wood. Now lets move on to the pollution, that will also be decreased because when you recycle something the fuel cost is low and when you make a fresh thing your fuel cost is very high as the fuel is used the smoke also comes which is anothe type of pollution.

How does recycling plastic compare to recycling materials such as aluminum paper and glass?

Only aluminum is continually recyclable. Paper has a one cycle recycle life. Plastic costs more in processing and transportation costs than the plastic resins are worth. Household pay more to recycle plastic than it would cost to bury it. Glass is not cost effective to recycle because it costs more to clean and separate it than it costs to make new glass. The energy to make new glass is about the same as recycling used glass.

How much cheaper is it to recycle plastic rather than dump plastic in land fills?

To the consumer, the cost to recycle plastic is often slightly higher than the cost to dispose in a landfill. In any case, the cost is +/- 0-15 cents per plastic bottle. The additional cost may be a small fee the recycler imposes to collect the plastic, or the cost and time required to transport consumer plastic to a recycler if curbside pickup is unavailable. In cases where consumers are actually paid something to recycle plastic, this incentive is usually subsidized by a government agency, paid from collected taxes. So consumers are effectively paying themselves to recycle; they are also paying administrative costs. The costs to manufacturers are roughly equal to use recycled versus newly manufactured plastic once collection and sorting costs are factored in. The real benefit of recycling plastics is that the process uses less energy, less raw materials, and puts less non-biodegradable material in landfills. This results in less of a burden placed on future generations in exchange for our present convenience of using and disposing plastic.

What happen if you don't recycle?

If you don't recycle paper, the trees that make our oxygen won't last so much longer. If you recycle cans, the energy that would have been used to make more cans will be saved. When you recycle, space in landfills are saved. Also, things such as plastic bottles can last up to 1 million years and Styrofoam never goes away, it is indefinite. The best thing to do is re-use as much of these things as we can. If we didnt recycle land fills will fill up and that just cost more and more air pollution casing us to no longer live

Why should you recycle plastic?

Plastic is a compound which can not be degraded easily ,by degrading microorganism ,there are plastic degradating microbes but their degradating action takes a long time, so a degradable plastic is necessary to protect the environment from polymer pollution. Because most plastics are created through the use of hydrocarbons, specifically oil. By recycling these plastics we are reducing the drain on the oil reserves, dropping the demand for crude oil and reducing the cost to everyone. By dropping demand, less oil is pumped out of the ground leading to fewer risks of oil spills and extending the usable reserves.
