This paper advocates the practice of recycling as it helps to conserve resources for future generations and to reduce the consumption of natural resources. The author discusses the environmental, financial, economic and social benefits of recycling materials such as plastics, glass, paper, and metal, as well as recycling in the computer industry. The paper also gives a short history on the growing success of recycling in the United States.

From the Paper:

"In the computer industry, recycling has become a very important concern. Some computer parts can be reused for their original purpose. For example, monitor tubes often work longer than the electronics that drive them. So by hooking up the tube to a television electronics board, a cheaper and more durable TV is created. Plastics are separated into soft and hard. Soft plastics are then melted and reshaped into new products. Hard plastics are ground into small pieces and mixed into new materials. Completing the zero landfill process, all metals are stripped out and resold."
