Recycled content

    « Back to Glossary Index

    Content that includes waste materials in new materials and objects.

    It is an alternative to “conventional” waste disposal that can save material and help lower greenhouse gas emissions. Recycled content can be either post consumer recycling or pre consumer recycling.

    Recycling can prevent the waste of potentially useful materials and reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, thereby reducing: energy usage, air pollution (from incineration), and water pollution.
