Landfill is not a long term solution
The amount of waste we are producing each year is increasing. By continuing to rely on landfill we are taking up valuable space in our countryside, creating more pollution and contributing to climate change because of the greenhouse gases emitted from landfill sites. Another reason to reduce our reliance on landfill is the financial burden which we could be facing if we fail to find an alternative.
Recycling is the solution
Many of the materials we throw into landfills have a value and can be used again. Most wastes are made from products that are slowly running out or cannot be replaced quickly enough because of the amount we consume. Recycling materials reduces the need to dig up or mine new raw materials and minimises landfill wastes which often damages the surrounding environment. Making new goods out of recycled materials also saves energy.
The benefits of recycling

Reduces the need for landfill and incineration
Prevents emissions of many greenhouses gases and water pollutants
