Generally, recycling is taking a product that is no longer usable, and then turning it into a new and usable product. While waste management is collecting, transporting, processing, monitoring, recycling, or disposing of such products. Recycling and waste management is a method of processing waste. In recycling, the materials that have become waste are made into new products because they may still be potentially useful. By doing this, raw materials are better preserved and it lessens their consumption. Recycling also reduces air pollution, water pollution, and conserves energy. Once recyclable materials are collected, they are transported to a collection facility by waste management. Here, different wastes (like glass, paper, and plastic) are separated and sorted. Some of the separation and sorting is done by machines, such as the handling of metal, but things like cardboard and glass are sorted by hand. Waste management is conducted to recover resources. Many substances are handled in waste management, such as radioactive, solid, gaseous, and liquid substances. Solid substances are the type in waste management that is recyclable. This process is conducted in residential, urban, and rural areas. A common example of it is taking out the trash each week and having it picked up by a truck. Although, only non-hazardous waste can be picked up curbside and potentially hazardous materials must be handled differently. In waste management, the most commonly recycled items are aluminum cans (typically the beverage can variety). Second are wires, steel, aerosol cans, jars, bottles, cartons, magazines, paper, boxes, and newspapers. Items made out of other materials, such as PVC, are also recycled under waste management. Recycling and waste management are correlated because they are both components in reducing waste and recycling is a part of the waste hierarchy. Materials suitable to be recycled include paper, textiles, glass, electronics, plastic, and metal. In order to recycle such materials, waste management must be implemented. This is because those items need to be processed by either having them picked up from a curbside or by taking them to a collection center. Once the materials have been removed, they will be sorted, cleaned, and finally reprocessed (meaning they are ready to be used in new products). In regard to curbside collection, which is most commonly used, recyclable materials and non-recyclable materials must be separated. For instance, things like plastic, paper, and glass all go into one container while non-recyclable trash goes into another. This is done so waste management can sort each thing more effectively. Typically, there are two trucks that operate for curbside collection. One only picks up recyclables and the other only picks up non-recyclables. Recycling and waste management is closely correlated. Basically, one cannot exist without the other because it is a dependent relationship that functions effectively together. Recyclables are commonly collected, transported, and handled by waste management before being used to manufacture new products. Waste Management, Recycling and Waste Management

Most people have heard about recycling and waste management. But many do not know what each one exactly is and how the two are correlated
