Recycling guides are collections of information, through any medium, that provide data about what recycling is, why it's important, what is and isn't recyclable, where to recycle and how to recycle. The guides also explain how to alter daily habits to become energy efficient and reduce greenhouse gases.
There are many groups, governments and waste management companies that heavily promote recycling education due to environmental and economic benefits. Such organizations typically provide a wealth of guides and learning materials online, or through the mail upon request, that cater to children, adolescents, adults and seniors. Most recycling guides split the information into sections based on daily activities and recycling needs within a community.
