Resources, Refuse, and Reuse (10)


目前人人都有垃圾分類與資源回收的概念,我們把垃圾回收以後,應該怎麼利用這些資源呢?
Many people have the concept of sorting items into trash, or recyclable material. What do we use with recycled materials?
紙、塑膠、玻璃、金屬四大類的資源垃圾,經過特別處理以後,都可以製造出可利用的物品。比如我們把廢紙回收做成再生紙,再生紙可以用來印報紙、雜誌、筆記本,或做成紙杯、衛生紙,這些都是我們生活中常接觸的物品。
Paper, plastic, glass, and metals go through a treatment process to create products for use.  Examples include recycled paper for newspapers, magazines, notebooks, or paper cups, and toilet papers.  These items are often used in our daily lives.
有些塑膠垃圾幾乎無法分解,成為萬年垃圾。為了我們的地球,聰明的科學家研究出把寶特瓶做成衣服、毛毯的方法。玻璃瓶、玻璃罐壓碎處理以後,可以作為鋪馬路的材料。各種金屬物品經過處理也可以再製造出很多有用的東西,減少空氣汙染和垃圾量.
Some plastic waste cannot be broken down into something useful, but becomes garbage that is not able to be decomposed.  Scientists have developed ways to turn this garbage into textiles such as clothing and blankets.  Glass bottles and glass jars can be crushed, and used as pavement material.  Metal items can also undergo treatment to be reused for other purposes, to reduce the amount of air pollution and waste.
近年來,全球暖化的問題越來越嚴重,地球的溫度不斷地上升。資源垃圾再利用不但可以減少資源的浪費,也對環保有很大的貢獻。雖然科學家研究出很多資源再利用的方法,可是更重要的是,我們都應該從自己的日常生活做起,人人努力做好環保。
Global warming has become more severe, with temperatures increasing.  Reusing waste can help protect the environment.  Although scientists have developed methods for reusing waste, we also need to look to how we generate waste in our daily lives, and what we can reuse.
