What is Resource Recovery?

What is Resource Recovery?

"Resource Recovery" is the collecting and separating of certain waste materials for processing into new forms, which will ultimately be marketed as raw materials for new products. Resource Recovery is not only environmentally important, but it is also cost effective. It reduces the amount of waste for disposal, saves space in landfills, is more energy-efficient than burning materials, and conserves natural resources.
