  1. It's good to recycle materials like office paper and aluminum cans. Recycling centers are efficient at breaking these products down and making new products from the reclaimed materials. In the case of aluminum, it also reduces the amount of mining required to get raw materials. While aluminum isn't scarce, mining it can release chemicals and toxins into the environment.
