Recycling is the third R of the three R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Recycling is the process of taking a product or material at the end of its useful life and turning it into a usable raw material to make another product. In 1999, recycling and composting activities prevented about 64 million tons of material from ending up in landfills and incinerators. Today, this country recycles 32 percent of its waste, a rate that has almost doubled during the past 15 years.
