Every year on November 15, a number of countries celebrate World Recycling Day, or World Recycling Day. The main purpose of this holiday is to draw the attention of the authorities, the public and industrial structures to this topic.
The main tasks of secondary processing are solving the problem of limited resources, reducing the cost of finished products through the use of cheaper raw materials and combating environmental pollution.
Today's holiday dates back to 1997, when US residents first celebrated America Recycles Day (which can be translated as "The Day America Recycles Waste"), which was held by environmentalists to encourage Americans to recycle waste and buy products made from secondary raw materials. Over the years, this holiday began to be held in other countries.
