Once children learn to recycle at home, they can share their experiences with their classmates on sorting recyclables at school or at their sports clubs. Also, metal recycling companies in Dubai have several such recycling campaigns for children that care for their present and future.

These days, teachers in school are playing a key role in educating children about recycling and how to reduce waste. Recycling and waste disposal exhibitions, outdoor campaigns, class activities, short movies and many other fun activities and tools are being used by  teachers to help their students to know the value of money and how to protect our environment.

There are various activities for children that can be undertaken to educate them about recycling and its importance to our eco-system. Following are the most common activities that can be carried out in school:
Conduct recycling workshops and campaigns on ways to recycle.
Arrange health and hygiene days to let them know the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
Place bins for each recyclable item.
Encourage them to bring reusable bottles that can be refilled instead of using single-use plastic bottles.

Effects of Not Recycling - LuckyGroup
As human beings we generate millions of tons of waste every day. Usually the items are made from paper, metal, glass, tires and plastics that we throw away in the garbage - everything counts as waste. However, we often do not realize that such waste items can be used as raw materials for the production of new items.  Not to mention landfills are a burden for our planet as it has environmental as well as economic impact to our society.

If we don’t recycle waste, they will pile up and accumulate and with each passing day, this will create more landfills. Some of waste disposed off can also seep into the groundwater and contaminate our drinking water along with the harmful chemicals that can also mix with environment.

To utilize valuable recyclable from landfills into the scrap recycling industry, it is very important to recycle scrap metals through which we can significantly contribute to the conservation of the earth’s natural resources and contribute significantly to the economy.

Effective recycling can also reduce the overall production of greenhouse gases. The recycling industry produces way less greenhouse gas per unit, compared to the quantity of gas emitted as a result of the manufacturing the same unit of the specific product. The reduction in greenhouse gas emission can significantly improve the negative effects caused by global warming.

We can all make a difference by recycling all that we can.  So, what are you going to recycle next?

How does Metallic Appliances be Useful for the Recycling Industry?

From microwaves to dishwashers and even air conditioners - we often throw away once the appliances starts to perform poorly or when the maintenance cost is high.  However, it is not a wise decision to dispose-off into garbage, instead we can recycle these devices properly. In several Dubai Scrap Yards, we usually see heaps of rejected apparatuses. It is worth to recycle those devices with approved electronic waste recyclers and then sell those metals to Aluminum Alloy Manufacturers in Dubai.

Proper sorting of scrap metals from those appliances can extract precious metals like copper and aluminium that can easily be sale to recycling industries. Several recycling companies, like Lucky Group, also purchase those scrap metals at a good prices.

After receiving the old appliances, the recycling companies first sort the similar type of material and remove different components from the appliances. Then, they sort the same according to the different types of metal and its grading.  Once the whole cycle is complete, then they sale those to the business houses dealing with metal products.

Precautions should be taken before removing or disposing of any hazardous part. This is because proper dismantling of old appliances requires not only experienced hands but also proper understanding of the parts.  So, it’s always advisable not to do the recycling job yourself. There are several companies available all over Dubai that will help you with the recycling process of your old appliances. They not only effectively recycle the appliances but also take care of the environmental factors.
