recycling is a waste of time. its been proven that it takes aload of energy to recycle things. So basically the resources needed to recycle out weighs recycling. Recycling certain things is not efficent. For example metal cans, firstly you need t cruch them (uses energy), secondly you need to melt the things (uses energy), thirdly you need to shape them again (uses energy), then you need to package them (uses energy).
