The 29th Project
(Programme for Environmental Development - Recycling Project)
Date : Yet to be decided -- Until target achieved.
Time : 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
Venue : Selected Educational Institutions, Hyderabad.
Target : 2.9 tons of recyclable waste.
Recycling of products like paper, plastic, metals, etc. and to prevent the further destruction of our environment is the main ideology of this project. All waste is collected and then we hand it over to the recycling unit for the further process. For every 1 ton of waste collected we give away or plant 50 saplings. We personally plant the sapling for our participants and in return collect unwanted recyclable materials from them for recycling. Our aim is a total RECYCLE-REUSE-REDUCE revolution.
Recycling is processing used materials (waste) into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from landfilling) by reducing the need for "conventional" waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emissions as compared to virgin production. Recycling is a key component of modern waste reduction and is the third component of the "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" waste hierarchy.
There are some ISO standards relating to recycling such as ISO 15270:2008 for plastics waste and ISO 14001:2004 for environmental management control of recycling practice.
Recyclable materials include many kinds of glass, paper, metal, plastic, textiles, and electronics. Although similar in effect, the composting or other reuse of biodegradable waste – such as food or garden waste – is not typically considered recycling. Materials to be recycled are either brought to a collection center or picked up from the curbside, then sorted, cleaned, and reprocessed into new materials bound for manufacturing.
Recycling of waste has huge environmental and economical benefits. Recycling of one tonne of waste paper saves 17 trees and 7,000 gallons of water. Our recycling project helps to deal with various issues like environment protection, reduction of global warming, improving green cover, reducing landfills, improving ground water quality, general health and hygiene, reducing garbage handling costs, better civic amenities and providing cost competitive raw materials to industries.
Bureau of International Recycling (BIR) is a world wide international trade federation representing the world's recycling Industry, promoting recycling across the globe.
